We are so fortunate to offer another season of “Are You Afraid of Opera,” with our truly gifted and passionate instructor, Dr. Manuel Marquez-Sterling. His zeal for opera is contagious and participants find themselves truly enjoying each and every class. Manuel taught history at PSU for 35 years with a specialty in medieval history and culture. He also broadcasted the popular radio program “History in the Music of the Great and not so Great Composers” over WPCR, the PSU radio station.
