About the event

Opera North’s hugely popular virtual choir returns!

Sing into spring with choral director Jenny Sterling and the Chorus of Opera North. 90% of previous attendees said these singing workshops improved their wellbeing, so why not give it a try? It’s guaranteed to brighten up your day!

This course is open to singers of all levels, from complete beginners to experienced choir-goers. If you don’t read music or know your voice type, don’t worry, you’ll be provided with all the resources you need to help you experience what it’s like to sing in an opera chorus – all from the comfort of your own home!

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to sing excerpts from Verdi’s Aida (as seen in Opera North’s flashmob!), get to grips with the Trojan War through Mozart’s Idomeneo, and visit the water sprites and mythology of Dvořák’s Rusalka. In the final session, singers from all vocal parts will come together to sing in a full virtual chorus.

The course is ‘pay as you feel’ – you will have the opportunity to donate however much you like in the checkout stage and before or after each workshop.

There will be a weekly session per voice type. Check the dates and times, and when you sign up, simply select either the morning or the evening sessions for the group you’d like to join.
