We are delighted to announce that the outreach work Intergenerational Opera do was highlighted in the Royal Carols for Christmas concert on Christmas Eve, 2023. 

Our wonderful ambassador Brenda Ford and the children from St Peter's School, Chailey are shown here meeting HRH The Princess of Wales whilst filming in December. The princess was very keen to discuss the benefits of intergenerational work, particularly involving music outreach as a way to bring communities together. Through her work in Early Years development she is highlighting the importance of intergenerational relationships and the impact they have in society. We are thrilled and very proud to be recognised in this way. 


Age does not define us, our voice can unlock the past and create the future

Intergenerational Opera is a music outreach programme running in East Sussex bringing together Primary School children and elderly people from the community including those with Dementia through creative music workshops. The project uses music to develop communication and social interaction, boost confidence and creative expression and to generally improve overall wellbeing for all its participants. Each Intergenerational project will run in conjunction with the school term in weekly sessions. Relationships formed during the project are predicted to outlive the project.

Sessions are run by two professional opera singers and supported by a pianist. Music is learnt by ear and created by participants. The project culminates with a performance to which parents and carers are invited. 

Intergenerational Opera is generously funded by Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival however much more funding is needed to run these important community outreach projects. Please get in contact if you are able to contribute financially/ would like to be involved in the funding or would like us to bring Intergenerational Opera to your community.
