OPERA-LOVING TEENS FROM FLORIDA GRAND OPERA TO PERFORM AT POMPANO BEACH CULTURAL CENTER
South Florida teen talent takes center stage at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center on Saturday, September 2, 2017. Nineteen members of Florida Grand Opera’s Youth Artist Learning Academy (YALA) will appear in a concert of art songs and scenes from classic operas and musicals. The performance begins at 7 pm.
YALA is Florida Grand Opera’s annual summer “boot camp” that gives South Florida teens the opportunity to indulge their passion for opera. Throughout the month of June, this year’s YALA enrollees, ages thirteen to eighteen, received incisive training in singing, dance, acting improvisation, costume design, and other aspects of the lyric art. YALA’s 2017 classes were the subject of a feature article by Janette Vazquez in the June 29 edition of the Miami Herald.
On September 2, the students will offer the final result of their summer studies with a concert of scenes from Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, Bizet’s Carmen, Mascagni’s L’amico Fritz, Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia, Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore, plus selected art songs and Broadway favorites.
