Preparing the Audiences of Tomorrow!
While the Academy’s primary focus is to train a new generation of opera singers, the organization also recognizes the responsibility for preparing the audiences of tomorrow. Opera Outreach, AVA’s educational program, gives middle and high school students the opportunity to learn about all aspects of opera through comprehensive study guides, followed by live performances of the opera they studied. After each opera performance, students are able to interact with the performers in lively question-and-answer sessions.
Give to AVA’s Opera Outreach Program through your United Way Contribution. Remember the Code: #3164
The Academy of Vocal Arts Opera Outreach program is eligible to receive individual contributions made through the United Way Specific Care Program. AVA supporters who give to the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania through their employers can also direct their United Way contributions to the the Academy of Vocal Arts. All you need to do is complete the top portion of your United Way form, then find the line for SPECIFIC CARE and enter our code #3164, the amount of your gift, and our eligible Agency name: the Academy of Vocal Arts Opera Outreach.
Any United Way gift that you make in this way will help AVA to meet production costs for opera performances scheduled for school children, as well as study guides, workshops and other activities carried out under our Opera Outreach program, introducing new generations to the joy of opera.
This project was made possible by a grant from The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
