Summer is for schools!


Summer is here, and OFTY is raising funds to support schools in need! Currently, school fees cover only one-third of the cost for each performance, yet it is still challenging for some communities to afford our programs. We believe every student should experience the magic of opera, regardless of financial constraints. That’s why we’ve created a special discount program for the schools that need our help the most. You can make a difference! Click on the van to donate via PayPal and include the word “discount” in your gift notes to support our initiative.

This season’s tour will reach about 70,000 students at 150 performances throughout the Upper Midwest. Students from each school with join the professional cast onstage as the opera chorus and in featured speaking roles. By reaching children in their schools, OFTY removes all barriers that stand between students and quality, live music theater. Through our program, we aim to ignite an enthusiasm for opera in children, and most importantly, a deep love for the arts. Thank you for considering a gift to Opera for the Young in support of our mission.
