    Opera Iowa

    Opera Iowa came to Harrison on Monday, April 4. Classes attended workshops before the performance to learn more about opera and stage performances. The talented performers presented a fantastic version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff which included a theme of bullying. We were very lucky to have Opera Iowa here thanks to funding by the PTA and ArtsBasics.
