Who says that children can't love opera and the classically trained singing voice? The first step is to let them hear it. We at the Jussi Bjorling museum in Sweden have tried just that. We recently completed a pilot project with the Ostermalm Elementary School in Borlange that introduced students to Jussi. Our project used a group of 80 students from ages 6 to 9. We designed the project to give students a broader experience than they would normally get during a standard one-hour museum visit. This project, with some modifications, could be used in any school and with any age group.
