Opera North invite you for a five-week series of festive workshops where you’ll learn all the best singing tips and tricks from a professional choral director. By the end of the course, you will be able to sing excerpts from Puccini’s famous opera La bohème, as well as Humperdinck’s Evening Prayer from Hansel & Gretel for sopranos and altos, or Sullivan’s ‘The Marquis de Mince Pie’ if you’re a tenor or bass.
In the final culmination session, singers from all vocal parts will come together for an online festive concert including Christmas carols and a final sing-through of the pieces with singers from the Chorus of Opera North.
This course is open to singers of all levels, from complete beginners to experienced choir-goers. There’s no requirement to read music and you’ll be provided with all the resources you need to help you experience what it’s like to sing in an opera chorus – from the comfort of your own home!
The workshop is ‘pay as you feel’ – you will have the opportunity to donate however much you like in the checkout stage and before or after each workshop.
There are a number of courses, running from November 11th to December 14th for each voice type. Visit the Opera North website for full information, including dates, times and steps to sign up.
