Invitation for Interested Students
Opera York is forming a Children's Opera Chorus.
Children from ages 9-16 years will have the opportunity to perform in Opera York's production of
However, a children's opera chorus can do so much more than just singing at performances. A proper chorus is trained in drama, dance and staging. Opera York has rented space and hired instructors for each area of study as well as special workshops.
We will meet on Saturday afternoons between 2:00 and 4:30 p.m. at the Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church. Choral and music instruction will begin at 2:00 until 3:00. Then the students will be given 20 minutes break during which time we will provide a nutritious snack. From 3:20 until 4:20, the students will study drama, dance or staging. It is our priority that this be a wonderful experience for the students. We are offering positions to 30 students who want to commit to this project.
