Partner universities are presented with the opportunity to engage with Opera North’s world class resources to provide unique and tailored masterclasses to their students.
Masterclasses can be organised with our music staff from orchestra to chorus as well as with our administrative teams where opportunities to learn and engage with our fundraising, planning and marketing teams are also available. Recent masterclasses include:
Emerging composers were encouraged to write new pieces of music with the opportunity to have these compositions performed and then workshopped by the Orchestra of Opera North, with further assistance from conductor and 2016 Pettman DARE Fellow Davide Levi and Orchestra manager Phil Boughton.
Director and Reader of Composition Kevin Malone said of the opportunity:
