My teens and I had a pretty incredible experience yesterday, as their idol (and mine, if we’re being honest), opera singer and teacher extraordinaire Joyce DiDonato, stopped by the ATS Opera Workshop Facebook page to leave us this video, offering the kids praise and encouragement going into their #GivingTuesday fundraiser today. Here’s the video that had them screaming and crying in their private Facebook group for at least a couple of hours:
What a generous and inspiring lady! We were all so moved that she would take the time for us in this way. If you have opera teens of your own, make sure they know about Joyce’s new newsletter for teens, Opera Rocks.
Now, #GivingTuesday is upon us! Please helps us raise the “obscene amount of money” Joyce has encouraged us towards!
