KJZZ interviews the Arizona Opera about working with the Grand Canyon Music Festival. Annika Cline reports on how the two are working together to help students in the Eighth grade learn how to compose their own music. The radio segment also provides the dates in which these pieces will be premiered. 

“We tend to think of art that is older as kind of separate and siloed, but when you think about it, what it means to be a person living in Arizona, or whether it’s Seville in the 1700s, really hasn’t changed that much. There’s still basic truths.”
