In collaboration with the City of Chicago’s After School Matters program, COT offers Chicago Opera Theater for Teens at Gallery 37 and Solorio Academy High School. Since 2006, students from many different backgrounds come together for this 10 week musical after school program. Through an audition process, 60 students receive a stipend to study vocal technique, drama, opera and musical theater staging and production, and learn about college and career opportunities each semester. The Chicago Opera Theater for Teens are often seen performing around the city of Chicago.
