Brenda Huggins

OPERA America
Learning and Leadership Manager
Greater New York City Area
I manage the Education and Community Engagement Network at OPERA America, and work to create professional development opportunities for opera educators. I also mentor the Opera Teens Advisory Committee, made-up of high school students from across the country who represent their local teen Opera Councils. Before recently moving to New York City, I spent 10 years in Boston as a teaching artist, theater and opera stage director, dramaturg, and puppeteer. I have taught at the Urban College of Boston, as well as conducted many artist residencies at Boston Area schools and community arts organizations. www.brendalynnhuggins.com
