Develop skills in singing and moving, ready to take part in full-scale opera performances.
Longborough Festival Opera’s Youth Chorus offers young people aged 7-18 the opportunity to develop their singing, creative skills and stage experience, coached by a team of vocal, drama and movement specialists.
Rehearsals take place around Longborough, through October-December 2023 and April-July 2024.
The Youth Chorus perform regularly with the Orchestra and Company of Longborough Festival Opera in showcases and local concerts, and are invited to audition for roles in main-stage productions.
