DES MOINES (AP) — Acclaimed opera singer Simon Estes will visit the Iowa Capitol to advocate for arts education.

Estes is scheduled to visit the legislature Wednesday. He’ll sing in both the state House and state Senate, as well as meet with top lawmakers and speak before the Senate Education Committee.

Estes is making the visit with the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education. The group is seeking to have fine arts included in the Iowa Core Curriculum.
