Royal Opera youth singing group open to new members

THE Royal Opera House Education in Thurrock’s new Youth Singing Group is up and running and ready for new members.

Young people from Thurrock aged between 11-25 years old who love music and have a passion for singing can join the new and exciting group to work on a wide variety of different musical styles.

The Thurrock Youth Singing group, named RM19 by its young members, will perform a dynamic and diverse repertory of songs. Its aim is to create new fusions of music by mashing Kanye West with opera, giving Taylor Swift a classical twist or perhaps adding a hint of beatbox to Mozart. The members of the group offer ideas and suggestions of interesting and exciting combinations to work on, they have input on choreography and appearance, and decide where to perform.

A taster session for young people to find out more about the new group and try out their voices is being held in Tilbury on Saturday 2 March. The free taster session is open to all young people across Thurrock, with no experience of singing or performing necessary. All that is needed is enthusiasm, a willingness to take part and a love for all kinds of music.

Royal Opera House Education Manager for Thurrock, Gabrielle Forster-Still, said: ‘Our Youth Singing group is now established with more than 30 members. We hope it will grow and develop and soon be performing across the area, showing the talent and creativity Thurrock has to offer.’

The free taster session takes place at the Gateway Academy in Tilbury on Saturday 2 March from 9.45-11.45am.

Refreshments will be served. For more information or to register for the session, please email getinvolved@roh.org.uk or call 01708 891200. Registering for the session is essential. Anyone unable to attend the taster session but interested in joining the group and attending the regular rehearsals should register at getinvolve
