©2019 Cumbria Opera Group (registered charity no. 1183545)


Outreach is at the heart of everything we do.

COGnitive Learning is the name given to the outreach and education programme run by the Cumbria Opera Group. Before and during our 2020 Opera Festival, COGnitive Learning will see Cumbria Opera Group professionals lead workshops in schools across Cumbria.

These workshops will focus on singing and theatrical performance, but will also encompass teaching about Classical Music in general and Opera's role in the development of European Culture. Elements of language-learning (especially German and Italian) will also be included, and COGnitive Learning will use collaborative music-making as a tool to promote teamwork in schools.

For further information about these workshops, please contact us here and a detailed brochure can be sent to your school or youth music centre.
