EDUCATION PROJECT 2020
Outreach is at the heart of everything we do.
COGnitive Learning is the outreach and education programme run by the Cumbria Opera Group. Before and during our 2020 Opera Festival, COGnitive Learning will see members of the Cumbria Opera Group company lead workshops in schools across Cumbria. Our previous school workshops have been 'inspiring and memorable', and we are excited to have the opportunity to introduce more young people to opera through our education project.
Our half-day opera workshops will give students insights into singing and theatrical performance, as well as education about opera's role in the development of European culture. Elements of language-learning (especially German and Italian) will also be included, and participants will use collaborative music-making as a tool to promote teamwork.
