For the 4th year and counting, Trevose Day School and Neshaminy Montessori have proudly performed an opera composed and directed by Charis Bean Duke. This year’s opera, “The Fisherman and The Genie”, was performed in the schools’ Barn on June 6 and 7, and lasted for about 45 minutes per performance.
Students spent one month rehearsing their songs, choreography and blocking. They love to practice, but thrive in performing even more so. Teachers at Trevose Day School believe that continuing to incorporate the arts into the curriculum is critical for students of all ages. It has been scientifically proven that music has advantages and health benefits for children. One of these benefits is that music helps to improve kids’ brain power and memory functions, as well as builds strong social skills and develops their confidence.
They sang their hearts out, and now the local newspaper has taken notice. Read up on what the Feasterville-Trevose Times has written about Trevose Day School’s recent opera performance here: https://bit.ly/2XsygtD.
