Opera Camp!


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 06/26/2020
One of Houston's most in-demand summer camp series is coming soon! HGOco is proud to announce three unique camps designed for specific age groups and experiences, with special sessions by Da Camera, AFA, SPA, and Houston Symphony.

SING! MOVE! PLAY!

Rising Grades K–2 | 1 Week $300, 2 Weeks $525

Let your wee one wiggle and giggle to opera's greatest tunes as the stories come to life with fun kinetic learning activities. Campers develop music and motor skills through the early fundamentals of singing and storytelling games with the help of teaching artists from HGO, Houston Symphony, and Da Camera.

You can choose to combine both sessions of Sing! Move! Play! or register for each week a la carte. Both weeks end with a special performance by the campers!
