During our Handelfest tour, we hosted a series of workshops for Key Stage 3 students, where participants came together and created an opera in 2 days. Alongside writer/director Jonathan Ainscough and composer Helen Woods, we introduced participants in London, Bournemouth and Saffron Walden to opera, with the intention of broadening their creative aspirations. Participants were joined by one professional singer and instrumentalist.
Workshops such as the Handel Project offer young people an invaluable experience, not only within their introduction to opera, but also within their social and educational development.
