    St. Benedict’s of Fontana, Wi was a lovely host for this operatic experience on Thursday, January 27th.   The church parishioners paid for the Chicago Opera Play House to come, perform and share music with a total of 5 catholic schools and the Fontana public school… which just walked over to the church.   We had a total of over 400 students and they all seemed to love it.    At one point “Papa Bear” exclaimed that even though he was a Chicago Bear he still likes “the pack”…. that is the GREEN BAY PACKERS.   This was quite a hit!   My favorite part was the roars these students created which I’m sure has never occurred in this lovely church before!
