Schools, Colleges and Universities

Opera and Classical Music are some of the best tools to help spark imagination and creativity in young people and are excellent catalysts for engaging classroom learning. WNO offers a range of resources to support teachers and educators, as well as singing, music and digital workshops (in VR/AR and digital animation) in schools. Workshops are led by our professional opera singers, orchestral players and animateurs and can be tailored for your school or SEND needs from Key Stage 1 through to 4.

We also offer a wide range of events for young people including:

  • Schools and SEN Concerts
