Simply put, Kim Carballo is a musician who uses her art to do good in the world, as an entrepreneur, performer, and teacher. She is the founder of Reimagining Opera for Kids (or ROK), a member of the Amity Trio, a teacher at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and is also involved in an exchange program in Kenya and the Dominican Republic.
In Part 1 of our conversation, I ask Kim to talk about Reimagining Opera for Kids, what it is, how it got started, and specifics such as the importance of grant writing.
In Part 2 of our conversation, Kim talks about her work with the Amity Trio and also how, as a teacher at Indiana University, she works with both the brass and vocal departments.
Every year, Kim flies to Kenya to be part of a teaching exchange program, and in the Bonus Room, she shares some of her experiences of working with students in Kenya.
