Voices of Opera


Making a joyful noise with people 55+

Minnesota Opera is proud to announce its newest education initiative, Voices of Opera, an opera chorus for adults 55+. Whether you have sung in the church choir for years or last sang in your high school choir, Voices of Opera encourages you to join with fellow musicians to perform famous operatic excerpts and other choral favorites. Matthew Abernathy, Music Director of Project Opera and Children’s Chorus Master, will lead the program and will be accompanied by Kathy Kraulik, vocal coach and accompanist for Project Opera.

No audition is required.

Joining Minnesota Opera in this project is the Sheldon Theatre in Red Wing, and Artistry Theater and Visual Arts in Bloomington. Starting around Labor Day, ensembles in Red Wing, Bloomington, and Minneapolis will meet for weekly for ten weeks, culminating in two final performances including the Ordway.

Exact program dates are TBA. Please sign up below to receive more information!
