2017 Student ConneXion Program



"Give opera and classical music a chance - it's not going to be for everyone,
but how will people know they like it if they don't get in the door?"

Renée Fleming


"We need to continue to spread the word and invite people into this fascinating, magical, life-changing world."

Joyce DiDonato (Merola 1997)
