Postponed to 2021

This event has been postponed

COVID-19 Update: UK Government guidance around playing musical instruments means that the Opera North Orchestra Camp must be cancelled for 2020. Instead we are holding two different holiday activities which will allow us to provide a creative Opera North holiday experience for young people in Yorkshire. Details to follow shortly.

If you have any questions please get in touch with Emma Barnett, Orchestral Activity Manager, emma.barnett@operanorth.co.uk.

Now in its fifth year, the Opera North Orchestra Camp provides an action-packed programme of fun, high quality musical experiences alongside the Orchestra of Opera North hosting young people from across Leeds and surrounding areas.
