From Couch to Chorus: Sing into Spring with Opera North

From Couch to Chorus: Sing into Spring with Opera North

Opera North are running From Couch to Chorus: Sing into Spring for singers of all levels, from complete beginners to experienced choir-goers. If you don’t read music or know your voice type, don’t worry, you’ll be provided with all the resources you need to help you experience what it’s like to sing in an opera chorus – all from the comfort of your own home!

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to sing excerpts from Verdi’s Aida (as seen in Opera North’s flashmob!), get to grips with the Trojan War through Mozart’s Idomeneo, and visit the water sprites and mythology of Dvořák’s Rusalka. In the final session, singers from all vocal parts will come together to sing in a full virtual chorus.

The course is ‘pay as you feel’ – you will have the opportunity to donate however much you like in the checkout stage and before or after each workshop.

One session per week, 1 hr. Day time and evening sessions available. 4 weekly sessions plus culmination session in week 5.

There is one session a week per voice type which will last approximately 1 hour. You can choose between daytime and evening sessions.
