Year 4&5 Garsington Opera Workshop

15th January 2020

This week, we were visited by Karen Gillingham and her team from Garsington Opera. Year 4 and 5 pupils took part in a fantastic morning workshop of games, drama and singing based on a short section of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The workshops culminated in small group and solo performances. All the pupils were brilliant, and I am extremely proud to announce that 10 of the pupils have been invited to join the Garsington Opera Youth Company for the 2020 season on the strength of their performance on Wednesday morning.  This is an extremely prestigious offer as each member of the company is sponsored to the tune of £1500.00 to cover the cost of their participation. There are already 2 other pupils in school who have been selected to participate in the youth company this year, so this brings our total number of pupils invited to join to 12. This is a fantastic representation of pupils from Frieth within the company. Well done to all of them!
