Story Into Song

by Opera Modesto

Opera Modesto’s Story into Song Literacy Initiative is a community collaboration to get more of our Stanislaus County community reading—and reading well.

Why here? Why now? And why support this effort? 

  • Stanislaus County continues to lag behind the state average in literacy achievement. 
  • The person who does not read, or read well, will suffer economically throughout life. 
  • Higher literacy rates are positively related to improved quality of life for all sectors of the community and economy.
