Kids and Pros Share Stage at Opera Outdoors

Omaha World-Herald: Go

Some kids from the Omaha Conservatory of Music have been immersed in opera for the past few weeks.

They’re members of the children’s chorus that will perform at Opera Outdoors, the annual Opera Omaha concert at Turner Park.

The kids — between the ages of 8 and 14 — started studying over the summer when they received sheet music and recordings of two songs from Georges Bizet’s “Carmen”: “Avec La Garde” and “Lesvoici.” They will perform both in French, one alone and one with the adult chorus.
