Young and aspiring musicians who would like the opportunity to perform with professionals from the Orchestra of Opera North are invited to apply for their summer camp by Friday 19 July.
This opportunity is open to all 10 to 18-year-olds who play an orchestral instrument and can attend from Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 August at the School of Music, University of Leeds. Young musicians will be guided and supported by professionals over the four days of the camp, engaging in instrumental, singing and creative composition, exploring new pieces of music.
There’ll be a combined youth and Orchestra North rehearsal during the week, with a performance on the final day.
Opera North’s Education Director, Jacqui Cameron, said:
“This is the fourth year we have held an Orchestra Camp at the University of Leeds School of Music, so it is already a well-established and popular event. What we have found in previous years is that the younger generation appreciate being given the chance to focus on their instrument for a few days, make new friends and perform with members from our Orchestra – while they in turn value the opportunity to share their skills with the musicians of the future.”
The cost of attending Opera North Orchestra Camp is £175 (additional siblings £155). The deadline for applications is Friday 19 July. More information and booking details can be found on the Opera North website.
The Liz & Terry Bramall Foundation supports the Opera North Orchestra Camp. The Education Programme is supported by The Whitaker Charitable Trust and Opera North Future Fun.
