Opera Workshop Program awarded Community Project Grant from Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council

Shoreline’s Opera Workshop Program has been awarded a Community Project Grant from the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council for its upcoming Opera Workshop 2018.

The Grant funded the commission of a new opera by Seattle composer Bruce Monroe. Mr. Monroe is a well-known conductor and composer, with credentials at the Fifth Avenue Theater, Village Theater, Seattle Children’s Theater, New York Public Theater, and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

The composer’s opera, Command Performance, will receive its world premiere as part of the performances for Opera Workshop 2018. Show dates are February 23, 24, and 25, 2018. Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets.

CommUnity Connection…Time to Meet, Learn, & Engage: Feb 9

We are grateful for the feedback we received during the Fall Convocation about ways we can learn about campus happenings and create more informal conversations between ET and the college community. To that end, we are launching a new series of informal campus conversations to support engagement and connection among employees.

The first CommUnity Connection will be held on Friday, February 9 from 1:30–3 p.m. in the PUB Quiet Dining Room, with the first 30 minutes for informal conversation with one another. Developed with employee input, this interactive session will provide time to gather and connect with employees, share information about timely campus events, ask ET questions, and participate in a prize drawing. As with all our gatherings, there will be opportunities to provide feedback so we can continue to improve our communication. (Note this gathering does not replace our Campus Update meetings.) We look forward to our initial session to connect and engage with each other!

Though the calendar indicates President Roberts if off campus Fri., Feb. 9, she will return to campus to be in attendance at this event.

Note: The Counseling Center will lead us in a fun trivia game that requires participants to make use of a phone, tablet, or laptop, so be sure to bring your device to the event to be able to play along!
