Ok, so everybody's doing Education and Outreach things these days, its clearly the 'thing to do'. I've always had a strong interest in youth education and was a keen member of and leader within the Guide Association from 0-18 years! However, I've never been able to turn my hand to specific arts and music education.
But then, a new opportunity came up at college and I just couldn't say no. We will be going into local schools in groups of 4 or 5 with composer and educator Kate Pearson, devising a new opera titled 'Into The Labyrinth'. It will be performed by the studentsin the RNCM's Opera Theatre in early November.
To say I'm excited to get stuck in and try something new would be a gross understatement, I can't wait!
