Educational Programs

Now in our 40th season, P/Arts brings high quality, accessible and affordable professional performing arts to northeast CT. Our flagship programs are our FREE Children’s Educational Opera and Children’s Educational Symphony programs.

Through our artistic partners, Salt Marsh Opera Company and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, local schoolchildren are introduced to the creative artistry, discipline, beauty and storyline in productions of the opera and of the orchestra. The students learn about the art form, the narrative and the music through a multi- media study guide provided to teachers. Each participating class is visited by the artists for an in-school workshop prior to the performances. In the spring, the children attend live, fully- staged productions of the opera or the symphony at the Hyde Cultural Center.

This is all provided FREE of charge to schoolchildren in the 24 towns of northeast CT and nearby MA. Each year approximately 2000 third graders participate in our symphony program, and 2000 fifth graders participate in our opera program. We have served over 150,000 local schoolchildren over our 40 seasons with our free educational programs.
