Speak! Language Center
In conjunction with its performances of the holiday classic, Amahl and the Night Visitors at The Paramount Theater, Speak! Language Center and Ash Lawn Opera present an interactive workshop for children to connect music, visual art, and the written word. Teaching Artist and elementary school music teacher, John Visel, along with a surprise performer, will make the story of Amahl come alive by encouraging the children to act and sing passages of it. Children will use paint markers and movement to reflect the shape of melodies and, in honor of the Three Kings in the opera, make and take home their own crown. Apple cider, sliced apples and cookies will be served. Recommended for ages six to 13.
