Singer/Actress & Voice Teacher Lisa Golda

It’s been another wonderful year with Chicago Opera Theater! Here I am with my wonderful teaching partners: Kimberly Chin, and Linden Christ, who is also our Education Director. This year has just been such a wonderful success. We are in residence all year long at CPS elementary schools helping the students to create their own operas, from melodies to song lyrics and props! This year, the kids wrote the script for the very first time–an activity that I facillitated.
Their operas were based on field trips taken at the very beginning of the school year. Clinton students visited the Museum of Science and Industry, and Hampton visited the Museum of Contemporary Art! Imaginative journeys ensued. . .we are pictured holding “planets” that the Hampton kids “discovered” in their opera. Clinton students envisioned a field trip gone disastrously wrong, with escaped tornadoes, zombie U-Boat sailors,¬†and wayward submarines. We’re already starting to plan next year’s activities! Here’s a link to my blog post at COT about script writing:
