Schools Workshops

WNO works with over 800 school pupils each week in both regular sessions and one-off workshops.

Our regular sessions involve weekly visits to primary and SEND schools in South Wales and Birmingham, culminating in sharing performances in the summer term. WNO vocal animateurs lead sessions introducing pupils to the building blocks of opera, teaching engaging repertoire and encouraging pupils and schools to sing.

WNO also offers one-off sessions focused around building pupil’s confidence, improving performance & singing skills along with opera at the core. These sessions can be tailored to the schools needs, though follow 3 basic ideas; Introduction to Opera, Song and Stories and WNO Creates an Opera.
