Gauteng Opera School Tours

 

Gauteng Opera prides itself as a nurturer and developer of opera and classical voices. And in an attempt to increase awareness on the company and most importantly on opera, the company had a programme of 5 tours for the year 2014/15.

 

The tour went to four different provinces being:

 

Gauteng Province

 

Gauteng province was able to experience the full journey of Opera as they were visited by Gauteng Opera twice and were also invited to coma and watch our productions of Cosi Fan Tutte and One Voice: an African Celebration

 

Limpopo Province

 

Limpopo province was very fortunate that Gauteng Opera could visits their province before their annual choir and solo eisteddfod and so we were able to conduct workshop for the schools in 4 districts. And during this workshop Gauteng Opera assisted the schools and conductors in:

  • how to prepare a choir
  • how to teach singing
  • how to learn opera music
  • research in opera prescribed songs
  • masterclass in the [prescribed music
  • worked with a qualified pianist

 

And experience what the finished product should be through a presentation by Gauteng Opera soloists and studio members.

 

Free State Province

 

Gauteng Opera invited schools in and around Bloemfontein to the Odeion auditorium at the university of the Free State for a showcase performance and edutainment segment. Gauteng was in Bloemfontein for a period of 3 days where they had 4 performances planned for the students.

 

North West Province

We visited 6 districts of this province and during that time Gauteng Opera soloists were able to perform twice a day and were seen by over 5000 children. This tour marked the last in the series and we would like to thank the National Lottery Board for funding all the tours.
