EPOC - Opera Workshop March 2016

On Wednesday 9 March our pupils were given the chance to enjoy opera in their very own school. We hosted a performance by the English Pocket Opera Company as part of an exciting national tour which was launched by United Learning - the group to which the school belongs.

Pupils at the school were treated to a performance of ‘Opera Blocks’; an engaging, interactive show designed to break down the building blocks of opera. Pupils were introduced to the three basic ingredients of opera – action, words and music – and were taught the more technical side of the music, for example the use of libretto, arias and choruses.

A fabulous workshop with interaction from staff and pupils, everyone thoroughly enjoyed joining in.
