Nevill Holt Opera’s Community and Education Programme
Our work with young people across the Midlands and young artists breaking into the opera industry is central to everything we do at Nevill Holt Opera. Since 2013, we have welcomed thousands of young people to enjoy performances at Nevill Holt, featured our young singers onstage in our theatre, worked to continuously improve our annual programme for young and emerging artists, and visited schools across the Midlands to deliver workshops and individual singing lessons.
We are constantly inspired by the young people we work with, but statistics support its importance too. Research shows that students from low-income families who take part in arts activities at school are three times more likely to get a degree, while people who take part in the arts are 38% more likely to report good health. The employability of students who study arts subjects is higher and they are more likely to stay in employment, while access to culture is one of the most important factors determining a young person’s well-being. Reaching young people with music and creative activities is clearly more important than ever. By choosing to take part in our Prize Draw, you will be playing a crucial role enabling us to grow this important strand of our work. Thank you.
“One event that sticks in the memory was the dress rehearsal which was attended by hundreds of local schoolchildren. Hearing the reaction in the theatre, and afterwards across Nevill Holt’s social media channels, was incredible. The kids absolutely loved it and, considering it was a Britten opera based on a Shakespeare play, I thought it showed children really can get on board with these art forms provided they are given the opportunity to see them done well.” Edmund Danon, NHO Young Artist
Lodge Park Academy, commenting on the first session of the Spring Education Tour: “The performances by Tom and Tom had a marked impact on the students. It was evident by the amount of jaws dropped that a powerful penny had dropped at the potential of performance that a lot of students have not witnessed live before. Also Tom and Tom providing tangible pathways to achieving success performing music that can be intimidating or perceived as extremely difficult had a noticeable impact.”
