She leads the three-tiered education program that commissions new works for children based on children’s books, develops original curriculum for engaging local high school students in main-stage contemporary opera productions, and hosts students of all ages in the Bay Area for final dress rehearsals throughout the season. Roma specializes in curriculum development that integrates music into every subject of standardized elementary and high school education.

She has worked with Midori and Friends on a pilot music outreach program and Hofstra University on a teacher development through music program. She is also the librettist for OP’s children’s opera commissions. Harriet’s Spirit, to premiere in January 2018, is her third libretto. She also wrote Xochitl and the Flowers (2016) and Amazing Grace (2015). A lyric soprano, Roma holds a Bachelor of Music from UC Santa Cruz in Vocal Performance and a Masters of Music Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
