Youth Opera 14 – 16 works with young people who are interested in developing their musical ability further and want to explore opera as a career. The group meets every fortnight during the autumn and spring terms in Cardiff and also for a week in the summer, and will explore choral and solo singing techniques, audition pieces and the arts as a career. The group is led by vocal leader Rachel Marsh.
Youth Opera offers opportunities to undertake residencies, workshops and performances, as well as the chance to undertake the Arts Award. In 2012 our 10 – 14 year olds toured Wales and England with the world premiere of Lynne Plowman and Martin Riley's World War II ghost story The Face in the Mirror, and in August 2013 our 16 – 25 year olds performed Paul Bunyan in the Wales Millennium Centre.
Watch out for our next Youth Opera 14 - 16 performance here.
