Explore opera in imaginative and accessible ways with Residency Programs designed to fit the needs of your classroom or community. An HGOco Teaching Artist will fill each session with a variety of entertaining and educational activities. Residencies can be 6, 8, or 10 weeks long –prices depending on desired length. Successful Residency Programs of the past include:

My Voice
For groups of all ages
Poets and writers from Writers in the Schools (WITS) help participants to “raise their voices” by writing poems on hard-to-discuss topics. UH composers set these words to music in original songs that are presented by Houston Grand Opera soloists and participants in a memorable culminating performance. 

Create an Opera
For students
Students write lyrics, compose music, and perform their own masterpiece based on a subject area or theme designated by the teacher. 

The Metaphor Project
For groups of all ages
Partcipants write metaphors based on their own life experiences. Professional composers then write original music based on these inspiring metaphors that participants will perform for parents and peers.
