Ms. Cheryl Warfield and Students of PS 226 in the Bronx sing “Tosca”

Arts Horizons congratulates Ms. Cheryl Warfield, director of the MORE Opera (Manhattan Opera Repertory Ensemble) and the student performers from PS 226 in the Bronx for their performance of Puccini’s “Tosca” sung in Italian.  The Manhattan Opera Repertory Ensemble (MORE Opera) transforms lives and inspires excellence by presenting concerts and educational programs of the highest quality to the general public and under-served audiences including disadvantaged youths and elderly persons throughout Manhattan.

We also thank Principal Gloria Darden for welcoming and coordinating the opportunity for the her students at PS 226 in the Bronx.  Ms. Cheryl worked with fourth graders during the month of October to participate in an opera program.  Ten students were selected and participated in additional rehearsals in preparation for the performance of Puccini’s “Tosca” sung in Italian.  The students were pleased to share their talent on stage with soloists and full orchestra under the baton of legendary Conductor Anton Coppola at Dicapo Opera Theater, 184 East 76th Street.

“They just grasped the music very quickly,” says Warfield. They’ve learned some new skills and how to apply them rapidly.”
