Howard Music Department is Going to the Opera – Twice!

ARABELLA by Richard Strauss – Monday October 2, 2017 at 7:30pm

ELIXIR OF LOVE  – Saturday October  7, 2017  2pm  (**Thanksgiving weekend**)

Hello Parents and Howard Students,

It’s Opera time again.   We’re offering dress rehearsal tickets for performances at the Canadian Opera Company.  Howard’s Music Department gets the opportunity to purchase tickets for dress rehearsals on the condition that the tickets are allotted on a ratio of 1 adult to 3 children.  This is so more kids get to see the performance than adults.  Tickets are $20 each with $5 per ticket going to the Howard Home and School Association to support music activities.  These dress rehearsals are fully staged productions performed a few days prior to opening night.  There are two fall performances in quick succession this season:

  • ARABELLA by Richard Strauss – Monday October 2, 2017 at 7:30pm
  • ELIXIR OF LOVE  – Saturday October  7, 2017  2pm  (**Thanksgiving weekend**)

When ordering your tickets, please provide the names of the students who’ll be attending.   The students can be siblings, peers or cousins; they do not have to be Howard students.  Tickets will not be ordered unless three students are listed on the order form.

Please send cash or a cheque payable to the “Howard Home & School Association” with your order.  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 Wednesday September  27, 2017, no later than 3:30 pm. Tickets will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions please email Ines at icolabrese@hotmail.com Thank you for your continued support.   We look forward to seeing you at the Opera!
