Opera North Online Instrumental Academy – Free instrumental workshops over half term

Opera North is hosting a series of free, online instrumental workshops for young instrumentalists (aged 10-18 and studying Grade 4+ or equivalent) led by members of the Orchestra of Opera North.

The workshops will be held between the 15 – 19 February (Half Term) and will focus on a particular instrument or on an orchestral section, such as woodwind, brass and percussion. Each session has been designed in collaboration with Opera North’s professional musicians to enable participants to celebrate what makes their instrument special and to develop technical ability and overall musicality in a friendly, supportive and safe environment. Above all, we want the workshops to offer a connection with professional musicians and a sense of extended musical community during the new lockdown.

All information is available on Opera North website: Orchestral Academy Online (operanorth.co.uk)

Please note: the deadline to register is 9am Monday 8 February. There is no fee for this project, but places will be limited to ensure workshops aren’t overcrowded.
