Congratulations to Form 5’s Emilia who has recently received the news that she has been accepted into Opera North’s Orchestra Academy as co-principle oboe.
The Opera North Orchestra Academy is an immersive orchestral training programme for outstanding young musicians age 14 – 19 from across the North of England and beyond. As a part of the orchestra, Emilia will attend a residency course over the summer holidays, where she will receive a world-class orchestra training experience with the Orchestra of Opera North in an inspirational and supportive environment. She will get the opportunity to rehearse and perform exciting repertoire, working side-by-side with the full orchestra of Opera North and will also receive sectional coaching from seasoned orchestral players, designed to develop excellence in ensemble skills and orchestral performance. It is a fantastic opportunity for Emilia to develop her orchestral skills and gain insight into working with a professional orchestra and internationally renowned conductor.
We look forward to hearing all about her experience at the start of next term!
