A summer highlight

To the Editor:

One of the music highlights of the summer for me is attending the annual Opera Fest concert, held last Friday at Union Chapel in Oak Bluffs, where a group of teenage women and men trained by artistic director Claudette Peterson presented staged and sung arias from a diverse selection of operas. The young singers were in fine voice, attractive in their period costumes, and believable with good acting and stage presence.

Next year, more parents and grandparents should bring their children to expose them to a group of teenagers who are far removed from the teenage gangs and school bullying we so often hear about in newspapers.
