Taking in the Grand OperaJune 1, 2013
The Florida Grand Opera is the seventh-oldest in the country and was founded in 1941. They perform at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Both venues provide plenty of seating and fit perfectly with the Opera. Along with great performances, the FGO provides educational programs for young artists.
This educational program is called the Teen Council and provides year-long programs to high school students looking to get involved in the arts. Students gain training and mentorship through this program in many different departments. Students can participate with a teacher recommendation.
The FGO also provides many community programs in parks, churches and other venues. The goal of these programs is to reach the masses and make the arts a larger part of the lives of residents in Miami. This is a season long program serving 14 libraries and more.
