Singers Jonathan Brain and Lucy Mervik and accompanist Tommaso Pollio hosted seven performances at five schools last week before taking feedback from students.
WA Opera education co-ordinator Terasa Letizia said the aim of the program was to get immediate feedback from their young audience and teachers to determine if the program was age and level-appropriate.
‘We want to develop programs and performances that are relevant, fun, engaging and interesting that will leave the kids wanting more,’ Ms Letizia said.
‘Most schools have a choir or music of some sort, so it’s just offering another level of music.
‘Opera music is often playing along in the background of their life.
‘Shows like X Factor and The Voice are all about singing and lots of kids want to sing.’
Ms Letizia said the St Paul’s students did not have a choir, but sang hymns and asked very interesting questions.
