Howard Music Department is Going to the Opera April 15th

Four Seasons Centre
145 Queen Street West

Hello Parents and Howard Students,

It’s Opera time again!   We are delighted to offer dress rehearsal tickets for select programs at the Canadian Opera Company. Our music program gets the privilege to purchase 50 tickets per dress rehearsal on the condition that the tickets are allotted on a ration of 1 adult to 4 children. Ticket prices are $20 each with some of that money going to the Howard Music Department. These dress rehearsals are fully staged productions performed just a few days prior to opening night.  Our last performance this season is:

Barber of Seville, Wednesday April 15, 2015   7:30pm     

When ordering your tickets, you need to provide the names of the students for whom you are ordering tickets. The students can be siblings, peers or cousins; they do not have to be Howard students.  Tickets will not be ordered unless four students are listed on the order form.  The idea here is to get the children exposed and hopefully interested in opera.

Payment is due at the time of the order submission (cash or a cheque payable to the“Howard Home & School Association”). Tickets will not be ordered without payment. A confirmation email will be sent out. Because tickets have to be prepaid, no refunds can be given. If you cannot attend a performance you are free to give or sell your tickets to another interested student.

If you would like tickets please fill in the attached order form and have it returned to the music room by Friday March 13, 2014, no later than 3:30 pm (firm deadline). Tickets will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions please email Ines at  Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you at the Opera!
