Welsh National Opera to hold special workshop with Lower School group

Aspiring Performing Artists at Rydal Penrhos will get the chance to learn from an internationally renowned orchestra.

The school’s Year 7 and 8 pupils will take part in a special workshop on Wednesday, January 23, which will be hosted by representatives from the Welsh National Opera.

As a national company with international status, the gifted opera members sit at the heart of music-making in Wales and play a valuable role with various community initiatives throughout the country.

They work with a number of partners to discover and nurture young operatic talent, and provide the springboard for international careers.

Touring is their lifeblood and the outstanding group strive to present the highest quality work across a thorough artistic programme, entertaining and inspiring audiences at operas and concerts and providing transformative experiences through their youth and community work.

This is the latest in a series of special visits from leading industry figures to Rydal Penrhos throughout the academic year, which have been implemented to give each pupil living and learning at the school with the best possible experience and learning tools to further enhance their development.

English and Drama teacher Fiona Earle, said: “This will undoubtedly be a fantastic experience for our Lower School group, and we are thrilled that the Welsh National Opera will be giving up their valuable time to hold a workshop here at Rydal Penrhos.

“Their standing within the industry is first class and it is going to benefit our young pupils considerably.”
