THE Royal Opera House TAKE FIVE Summer School for instrumentalists and singers takes place at Palmer’s College in Grays from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 July.
Young musicians from five areas: Barking & Dagenham, Essex, Havering, Southend and Thurrock join professional musicians and singers in the three day Summer School.
TAKE FIVE explores Bizet’s opera Carmen through whole group ensemble playing and singing, intensive sectional rehearsals as well as creative sessions, all alongside professional artists. A short performance for friends and family will close the Summer School on Saturday 27 July.
Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “Having professionals from the Royal Opera House to work with students from across Essex and East London is a wonderful coup for Palmer’s College and we’re delighted to be able to provide the venue for the first TAKE FIVE Summer School. I’m sure it will be a tremendous success and I look forward to welcoming friends and family of the young people to see and hear the results of their hard work.”
