My best addition to the conversation, "Every year you are a different organization. Build on what you did that was amazing, and throw out what doesn't work."

Learn how to navigate the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and articulate the value of opera K-12 education programs. Sandra Ruppert, director of the Arts Education Partnership, will provide an overview of the CCSS. Hear from Brandon Gryde, director of government affairs at OPERA America, about how the opera field has contributed to arts education advocacy. Jill Burnham, education manager at Los Angeles Opera, and Barbara Lynne Jamison, youth programs manager at Seattle Opera, will join the conversation for a discussion on how opera companies are working with schools and teachers to prepare students for success.

Story
Tagline
OPERA America is dedicated to supporting the creation, presentation and enjoyment of opera.
Introduction
OPERA America draws on resources and expertise from within and beyond the opera field to advance a mutually beneficial agenda that serves and strengthens the field through programs in the following categories: 

  • Creation: Artistic services that help artists and companies increase the creativity and excellence of opera productions, especially North American works;
  • Presentation: Opera company services that address the specific needs of staff, trustees and volunteers;
  • Enjoyment: Education, audience development and community services that increase all forms of opera appreciation.

The association provides members with an array of publications and online resources, regional workshops, an annual conference and network-specific services such as conference calls, listservs and direct contact with staff with expertise in opera production, administration and education. OPERA America provides members with tools to maximize the effectiveness of financial and human resources, expand the scope of repertoire and programs, and extend their reach to new and diverse audiences. 

Founded in 1970, OPERA America has an international membership that includes nearly 150 Professional Company Members, 300 Associate and Business Members, 2,000 Individual Members and over 16,000 subscribers to its electronic news service.
