Kudos: Opera was a big hit in local area schools

To the editor:

The Nevada Opera Studio Program performed “The Barber of Seville” for more than 8,000 local students the week of March 26 through 30. Tahoe Arts Project sponsored the Nevada Opera in 12 elementary, middle and high schools as well as a public performance at the Lake Tahoe Community College Theater on March 31.

On behalf of the board of directors of the Tahoe Arts Project I would like to thank Bill Chernock of Zephyr Cove Resort, Jan McCarthy-Sutton of Stardust Lodge and Guy Lucas of Forest Inn Suites for providing lodging for the performers during their stay at South Lake Tahoe. Thank you to Monica Bandows of Heavenly Ski Resort for donating gondola passes for the performers and Andy Chapman of Hornblower Cruises for donating Tahoe Queen passes. It’s always nice when our guest artists can get out and see our beautiful area.

Thank you to RSN for having us on the air to promote the public performance, and thank you to the Tahoe Daily Tribune for the front-page article with beautiful color photos. The Lake Tahoe Reading Council had many of their members at the public performance volunteering their time. Thank you for all your help.

Thank you to Lake Tahoe Community College for providing the theater for the public performance. The Nevada Opera was well received by students Many of them left the program saying “I like opera.”

Thank you to everyone who supports the arts in our schools and community through the Tahoe Arts Project.

Peggy Aguilar, executive director
