Norfolk Schools Opera Project
The Norfolk Schools Opera Project was established in 1997. In the past 21 years we have worked with over 3,300 children and 350 teachers from 123 Norfolk schools.
The purpose of the project is to engage Key Stage 2 children in creative and cultural learning through the medium of opera, in order to foster a long-term relationship with the arts, enhance their school attainment, and develop their aspirations.
The project has a particular focus on supporting pupils facing serious socio-economic disadvantage.
For 2018 we are expanding the Norfolk Schools Opera Project into a year-long programme. Working with Norfolk Music Hub to deliver a programme for pupils, teachers, and young gifted and talented musicians across the county.
The 2018-19 programme will include an Opera Celebration Day, CPD for teachers, singing and music workshops for children, and the creation of a brand new children’s version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, featuring a fusion between classic opera and salsa, to be performed in June 2019 at Norwich Theatre Royal.
We are currently recruiting schools to join the project, both as performing schools, and to be part of our audience. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01603 598 600
