The DRET NHO Children’s Chorus

Since 2014, our Children’s chorus has been drawn from the schools of our Education partner, the David Ross Education Trust.  Prior to 2013, children from these schools had little interaction with live-music and opera.  Since then we have offered them opportunities to attend rehearsals and performances, undertaken workshops with NHO singers in school, and, most significantly, welcomed them onstage as the children’s choruses in our mainstage operas, and in bespoke education performances like 2017’s Noye’s Fludde.
