Youth Chorus

Youth Chorus Header 2

We are developing exciting plans for a Youth Chorus, ideal for students aged 8-18 with an interest in music, dance and drama.

The Youth Chorus will create more opportunities in the community for local young performers, with the possibility of taking part in future productions at Longborough Festival Opera.

Participants will receive professional coaching in singing, language and movement from members of the Longborough creative team.

The repertoire will encompass a wide variety of styles, and the programme will culminate in a performance in the grounds of Longborough Festival Opera House during the 2019 season.
