Wednesday 25th September 6th form singers from The Ladies’ College, Elizabeth College and the Grammar School were treated to masterclasses run by OperaUpClose. Performing on the island they were able to spend time with our young musicians for 90 minutes where they passed on their expertise and vital tips. All of the students have aspirations to study music either as a subject or as part of another degree programme and therefore this would have been vital to their preparation as they commence auditions.
Mae received one of the 20 minute classes ‘I really enjoyed today and although it pushed me out of my comfort zone I gained lots of useful skills which I can transfer into my other pieces. Thank you for the opportunity!’
Many thanks to Mr Henderson for accompanying and to Mr Wright from the Schools’ Music Service for providing this opportunity.
