Austin Opera offers opera-loving parents a chance to enjoy the Austin Opera’s Sunday matinee performances while their children enjoy an afternoon of music, games, arts and fun.
The Sunday Matinee Music Camp program is led by teachers from Armstrong Community Music School and provides cultural enrichment for kids ages 4 to 10 years old. Kids participate in fun music lessons and games, movement activities, and opera-related crafts. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
ABOUT SUNDAY MATINEE MUSIC CAMP Adults must purchase a ticket to the opera and attend the performance. Matinee Music Camp is held in the AT&T Room on the ground floor of The Long Center. This is a secure room with easy access to exits and bathrooms. Children will not be allowed to leave the room without supervision by at least one Austin Opera/ACMS staff member of volunteer.
Snacks are provided for children during the camp. Children may also bring their own snacks from home. Please alert staff ahead of time about any special needs, restrictions, allergies, etc.
Adults will be asked to sign a waiver and leave their seat locations and cell phone numbers with staff at check-in. In case of emergency, Austin Opera staff will locate parents by seat number and/or be sent a text message to their cell phones. (We ask that cell phones be kept on silent or vibrate in consideration of other opera attendees.)
