Onyx Opera 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.
Onyx Opera is a key component of Onyx Community Outreach Rehabilitation Center.
