     Central to the Hub Opera Ensemble’s mission is education, not just of young singers but also of the next generation of opera lovers; our children and the children in our own back yard of Washington County, Maryland.  To further our mission we are planning a special free matinee performance of "The Magic Flute" for a group of four hundred fourth and fifth grade students from Washington County schools.  Unfortunately, we live in an era of budget cuts and a dwindling focus on arts education in our public schools.  All this when research indicates that students involved in the arts (and especially in music) become better students and ultimately better citizens.  We're therefore turning to Kickstarter to raise the cost of staging this special matinee performance for the kids, a performance that will kick off our subsequent three-night public run of "The Magic Flute" and also our third season of fully-staged professional opera in Western Maryland.  Please help us fund this great opportunity for the kids, igniting what will for some of them be a life-long love of opera and the arts, and know that anything we raise above our current goal of $3500 will go toward future educational performances just like this one.  Thank you.
