Work in Schools

We provide costume design workshops for fashion students, professional employment coaching to build confidence in students before entering the workplace, and we provide a programme specialist music coaching for Gifted & Talented children. In 2019, our work in schools focussed on material from our mainstage production, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, driven by an identified need to support children’s engagement with music and singing as they move from primary to secondary education.

In 2017 we were awarded the prize of ‘Best Event’ – for our ‘growth, engagement with community and work with young people’ at the Leicestershire Tourism Awards.

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. Bespoke education performances have included our 2017’s Noye’s Fludde, and our 2019 production of Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 

Of their starring role in 2019, Mark Pullinger of Bachtrack noted that ‘they sang like angels’, while the Telegraph stated ‘Britten would have been delighted by an excellent children’s chorus that performed with terrific verve and clearly relished all the music’s sportiveness.’
