Glyndebourne Youth Opera invites you to join acclaimed composer and musician Fraser Trainer and a team of musicians for two nights of singing, exploration and musical fun. Using the human voice as the starting point, Fraser will help the group to generate ideas, collaborate on musical structures and unearth inner creativity as a starting point towards making a new opera.
These sessions are aimed at young people aged between 9 and 19 and accompanying parents/carers. No previous experience is necessary, but come ready to sing, share ideas and get creative. If you play a musical instrument you are welcome to bring this too! Fraser Trainer is in demand throughout the world both as a composer and as a leader of innovative, creative, practical composition projects for professionals and non-professionals alike. Between 1999 and 2007 Fraser was Creative Director of the London Sinfonietta’s award winning education programme.
Glyndebourne’s award winning education programme reaches hundreds of young people in Brighton and Sussex every year through Glyndebourne Youth Opera (GYO), which includes outreach workshops, talent development work and world class performance projects. In 2017 we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of GYO.
