SHS Music Students Attend Opera in Chicago

Sturgis High School Band & Orchestra students had the opportunity to attend Mozart's "The Magic Flute" at the Lyric Opera in Chicago. The sold-out performance was preceded by a lecture about the opera and the music. Orchestra Director Eliot Gitelman added, "A highlight of the setting for the opera was an entire two-story house constructed on the stage on a large turntable to allow different views of the house and yard." After the three and a half hour production, the students attended a dinner at The Italian Village restaurant.
