The Wheeler Wildcats 1st Grade Opera Stars

Opening Minds through the Arts in Tucson Unified School District is an arts integration program that uses the different art forms to teach the tested core curriculum. In the opera portion of the program, teaching artists use music and theater to teach language arts skills to first-grade students. As a part of the program, all first-grade students are taught to understand story elements, how to create lyrics and compose original music in order to share a story with an audience through the art form of opera.

Scheduled events:
The Wheeler Wildcats Opera Stars: The Granjeros and the Hikers
First Graders from Wheeler Elementary School, TUSD, will perform the opera they created through the OMA program.
