Artist in Residency
This interdisciplinary program ties in with a variety of curricula including language, history and art. Residencies can be as general as “What is Opera?” or as specific as preparing students to get the most from a TCO main stage performance. Presentations can also be tailored to focus on certain composers, periods, or languages in opera. TCO staff work closely with teachers to design a unique program.

Tri-Cities Opera’s own talented Resident Artists can put on concerts of pieces from the standard Opera/Operetta/Art Song repertoire for any occasion: in the schools, for private parties, in community theater settings and retirement communities. For groups who plan on attending our mainstage performances, or for those who want to learn more about a particular work, we can also put together “preview” presentations of the season’s mainstage operas, complete with singing and explanations of the plot.
