DSO Neighborhood Series | BRITTEN & MENDELSSOHN

Thursday July 11, 2024 | 7:30p

Caroline Shaw’s work takes us “to the other side of Alice’s looking glass.” Soprano Erika Baikoff, a recent graduate of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, joins the DSO to “stretch gold from star to star” in Britten’s brilliant setting of French poetry. Mendelssohn’s First Symphony, written when we he was just 15, dazzles with the fire of youth.

CAMP IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!

Get signed up today and join us for Finding Nemo Jr!

Theater Camp – (Grades 5-9) – Week 5-8 (July 22-August 16): This 4 week session of the performing arts camp offers campers the opportunity to be a part of a full-scale theatre production. From acting work to choreography and voice training to “behind the scene” opportunities, each component of this camp helps to build self-esteem as well as confidence.

Junior Theater – (Grades 3-4) – Week 7 & 8 (August 5-16): This camp is for campers who are interested in rising up to theater camp in the future! Learn dances and songs to join our Theater camp for their production and participate in both shows alongside the theater camp campers.

AND NEW THIS YEAR:       

Set Building 101 – (Grades 3-4) – Week 5 & 6 (July 22-August 2): Set building 101 will teach campers age-appropriate backstage skills with hands on experience helping create the underwater world of Finding Nemo Jr. Campers will be supporting fellow campers by assisting with the construction of the set, painting, prop construction, and more. We not only want to foster creativity backstage but the collaboration and teamwork that goes into a theatre production. Our hope is that all campers leave our theatre with a better understanding of how each piece of a production is just as important as each person who makes it possible.
