Our Summer intensive brings together students from 4th grade to adult with no audition requirement.

The Academy students will perform four free community concerts at UNLV in the month of June. See our home page for more information and the Registration Link!
NEW - Summer Adaptive Music Camp
Thank you 2019 Campers! See you in 2020.
This new summer music program was created with the City of Henderson due to the number of requests from parents with arts minded children with special needs.
Vegas City Opera pioneered the first “sensory adaptive” educational program in Nevada in 2017, with the support of the Nevada Arts Council. This program was created to bring opera to students who are mentally and physically disadvantaged from preschool to high school. The program reached three schools in its inaugural year, and will perform this season at Palo Verde High School, Western High school, Derfelt Elementary School and East Las Vegas Community Center. Titled ”What is Opera?”, this 30-minute program comes with teaching materials, a coloring handout, and a question-and-answer session with the artists.

This 20-30 minute introduction to opera is a simple pop-up concert during lunch time. The concept is to thrill, delight, and surprise students with an immersive program that breaks down the "stuffiness" factor of opera (K-12).
