Opera North Sing ON - Oakwood

Sing ON is a programme of weekly singing activity (during school term time) for people over 55. Sessions operate on a pay as you go drop-in basis, no block booking necessary. Join us at any time - just come

Sing ON sessions give participants the opportunity to enjoy singing as part of a group, to explore a wide range of repertoire including opera, and to connect with others in a friendly and welcoming environment

Sing ON sessions are led by a vocal leader and accompanied by a pianist

Sing ON participants are also offered opportunities to engage with the wider company of Opera North, including exclusive workshops with the Opera North Chorus

We end each term with our Sharing Event where anyone who would just like to see what we do is welcome: family, friends, neighbours, locals (regardless of age) but especially anyone considering joining us

Yes, everyone is welcome to come to along and hear us workshop the pieces we have been practising during the term, free of charge

You can watch and listen or join in just as much or as little as you feel like. Its entirely up you. And there will be a free cup of tea or coffee (and a biscuit) in the break. What's not to like?
