Putting on a show from the ground up

We will encourage good natural voice production and our young operatic stars will devise, compose, stage and perform a brand new piece of music theatre from the ground up. There's no need to have previous experience as a singer, actor, artist or instrumentalist, but any of these skills will be drawn on as we work towards a performance at the end of the week.



Brought to you by an inspiring team of professional musicians, composers and creative artists
