Onyx Opera Inc. moved to the VI in order to create a paradigm shift in the territory through the Arts, particularly Classical Music. The shift will take place by exposing and involving children, youth and young adults to a whole new level of the Arts. Documented statistics have shown that serious involvement and participation in the Arts has a positive effect on the academic achievement and lives of the participants.
Studies show the ratio is a 4% increase in Mathematics and 7% in English.
From my own experiences, two of the key benefits of Art involvement are; focus and discipline.
Fully and semi--staged productions and concerts with Piano or orchestra in St. Croix, St. Thomas, and the Caribbean.
These performances will allow singers with the voices for Opera and Musical Theater to train, coach and perform, in order to gain the necessary on stage experience that leads to Artistic growth.
Master classes will be conducted by Retired Metropolitan Opera Tenor, George Shirley and Famous Diction and language Vocal coach,; Maestro Garofolo of Italy.
