Beginning this fall, ForWords will be open on Saturdays for students in the Canal area of San Rafael. We have an exciting new partnership with Opera Parallele of San Francisco to develop student spoken word/musical pieces based on the opera “Dead Man Walking.” students will read the book by, and interviews with Sister Helen Prejean, work with the artistic director and conductor of Opera Parallele which will perform this opera in February. As they learn about musical composition, and explore issues of hope, redemption, faith and love, students will create their own digital and spoken word compositions.
