Community Residencies

Community Residencies: In Harmony Opera North

We believe that bringing music into the heart of a community can significantly enrich people’s lives. Our residencies are long-term programmes which use the art-form of opera, from instrumental music, to theatre, to movement and singing, to draw communities together.

Current Opera North Community Residency programmes are underway in the Belle Isle area in south Leeds and in Bransholme in Hull.

In Harmony Opera North is a Community Residency programme taking place at Windmill Primary School, impacting on over 450 children in full-time education and the wider community in the Belle Isle area of South Leeds. It is the first In Harmony project in Yorkshire, the only one nationally that is delivered by an opera company, and includes a significant focus on singing as well as instrument playing. From September 2015 In Harmony Opera North will expand in to a new school in Hunslet, South Leeds: Low Road Primary School. Read more...
