Classical Vocal Arts For Children (CVAC) 

About Our Program

MORE Opera’s “Classical Vocal Arts for Children” (CVAC) is a music appreciation and chorus training program open to all students aged 6-14. CVAC provides children with the opportunity to explore music and expand their musical skills. Participants learn to sing vocal classics and opera, are introduced to the rudiments of vocal technique, ear training and language arts, and perform in concerts and outreach programs to promote vocal arts and cultural enrichment.

Opera singer and teaching artist Cheryl Warfield will work with students of all musical levels to develop their vocal skills, musical expressiveness and chorus preparation.


MORE Opera actively seeks children from diverse backgrounds and offers the opportunity to experience musical excellence in a multicultural environment. Through music and choral singing, our participants develop relationships that enrich their lives while benefiting their families and the community.
