Opera Jacksonville Awarded Outreach Program Funding
from The Community Foundation Award of NE Florida
Opera Jacksonville was awarded The Community Foundation of NE Florida 2013-2014 funding for its
outstanding educational outreach program. The award supports and promotes Opera Jacksonville’s
partnership with the Metropolitan Opera. This invaluable program trains and mentors Duval County
teachers in the world of opera, who in turn educate their students, and accompany them to live HD
Metropolitan Opera broadcasts of opera in participating local theaters.
Opera Jacksonville gratefully thanks the Community Foundation for this opportunity and award.
2013-2014 School Program Comes to a Close
On April 5th, 2014 our school year program came to a close when 75 Duval County students, teachers
and parents attended The Metropolitan Opera HD Live Broadcast of La Boheme. La Boheme marked
the 24th performance Opera Jacksonville has brought the Metropolitan Opera School program to Duval
County students. This coming school year will mark our 7th year of partnership with the Metropolitan
Opera and its generous program sponsor, Bank of America.
