Are you curious about other musical traditions? Would you like to meet people from across the world in a friendly environment, learn new skills and discover new songs?

Opera Connect online workshops look at different musical traditions. You will get to meet artists who will share tunes and stories from their countries of origin.

This time, we are delighted to welcome violinist Cristina Ocaña Rosado. Originally from Malaga, Cristina has been playing in the second violin section of the Orchestra of Opera North for the last eight years. She will be joined by choral conductor Elena Camblor-González. Together, they will introduce you to some of their favourite Spanish songs.

To join the call, please click the link from your email, which should open in your web browser. Your browser will then prompt you to open Zoom (if you have it installed on your device) or to join the call from your browser.

Alternatively, you can open the Zoom application, click ‘join a meeting’, and enter the meeting ID and password.

Why can’t I hear the other singers in the session?

Unfortunately, the time delay on Zoom means it’s impossible for everyone to sing at the same time. To solve this, everyone is muted during sessions so you can sing along and learn at home without distraction.

I can’t see the music properly on Zoom – how do I fix this?

There are two View settings on Zoom – ‘Gallery View’ and ‘Speaker View’. Please make sure you select the ‘Speaker View’ setting on Zoom once the workshop has begun, to ensure that you see the session properly. You change your View settings by clicking the icons in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

Sometimes, other participant’s faces can cover the right-hand side of the screen when the sheet music is being shared on-screen. If the faces are obscuring your view of the music, you can remove them by either minimising the thumbnails, or clicking ‘View Options’ at the top of the screen and selecting ‘Side-by-Side’ mode.

Will the Zoom sessions be accessible?

We will be captioning all Zoom sessions. To enable the captions in Zoom, click on the ‘CC’ button which is to the right of the ‘Record’ button. You can then follow every word being spoken – this can be useful if you are hard of hearing or listening in a noisy environment.
