Join Prelude Music Classes as we welcome author Dennis Arrowsmith to Prelude for a Musical Story Time! Come listen to Dennis read his first book, The Armadillo's Dream, commissioned by the Houston Grand Opera. The Armadillo’s Dream tells the story of Sandy, a determined armadillo whose fondest wish is to sing!
Dennis fell in love with the performing arts when he played Jack in Into the Woods in 7th grade. He moved to Texas in 1999 for a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from Rice University. Upon graduation, he joined the chorus of Houston Grand Opera (over 40 productions to date) and performed with their touring education program Opera to Go! for nine seasons. He transitioned to the administrative side in 2015 as Touring Programs Manager. He continues to perform, delighting audiences in many principal roles with the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Houston. His position at HGO allows him to explore other creative sides such as directing and writing – his first book is HGO’s first commissioned storybook, The Armadillo’s Dream.
