We're very excited to bring Georges Bizet's CARMEN to the stage June 3-4 this summer, but we need support to make this a reality.  We've launched a Go Fund Me Campaign to raise $16,000 for Carmen and beyond.  Our students inspire us and they tell our story best in the video below, along with professional mezzo soprano Katharine Goeldner, who will be singing the title role in Carmen.  We appreciate all donations and thank you for sharing this campaign link:   https://www.gofundme.com/topdsm
