Intergenerational Opera C.I.C.
Watch our new promotional video featuring students from Forest Row Primary School, East Sussex.
This short video was filmed at the culmination of a six-week project working with children from year 6 in December 2022.
Although Intergenerational Opera specialise in intergenerational work, we also offer projects for primary schools to experience our creative music workshops and to learn about opera.
With thanks to our official videographer and photographer Rohan Van Twest
SING YOUR STORY
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 will use 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.
