ABOUT LYO SUMMER SCHOOL
NEXT SUMMER SCHOOL 2020
The summer of 2020 feels a long way off, but keep it can be best to plan ahead. When we know dates for that Summer School we will add here with information on how to sign-up.
Each year, in the school summer holidays, we run a 1-week LYO Summer School. We welcome young people aged from 8-16, and design an engaging and enjoyable week of drama and music, leading to a small performance for friends and family.
Catch-up with good friends.
Many strong friendships are made at LYO, and the Summer School enables pals to see each other over the long summer holiday, rather than wait until the next production.
Learn new skills and step forward on stage.
This gives our 12-16 year olds a chance to step out of the chorus and build confidence as individual performers.
Try out LYO.
Give LYO a go and find out why so many kids sign up to spend time together singing and performing opera.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Learning and exploring various music.
There will always be some opera, but for a young group this will be balanced sensibly and carefully with a range of other genres. Musical theatre, operetta, perhaps choral, and always looking for the fun.
Learning and exploring drama and stage craft.
What it means to combine music and storytelling together. Foundational stage craft experience.
A group performance on the Friday early evening for friends and family.
Everyone performing, sharing what they have learnt through the week.
We will then also adapt to what will be most fun and informative for the group.
Use the following form to write to us directly. We will then reply with more information and the booking form.
