"It is the desire of Opera NOVA not only to cultivate future audiences for symphonic music and opera, but also to supplement the efforts of local music teachers in the schools who are striving to make great music “come alive” for the next generation." -Miriam Miller--President, Opera NOVA
"Our future as an innovative country depends on ensuring that everyone hass access to the arts and to cultural opportunity...But the intersection of creativity and commerce is about more than economic stimulus, it's also about who we are as a people. The President and I want to ensure that all children have access to great works of museums. We want them to have access to great poets and musicians in theaters around the country, to arts education in their schools and community workshops."
