For 14 to 21 year olds
Connect is made up of Connect Chorus and Connect Orchestra and is a unique programme which gives aspiring singers and musicians the chance to develop their knowledge, technique and skills with the help of Scotland’s top opera professionals.
Plus, this year’s Connect members will also have the chance to be involved in our international project for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games cultural programme.
As a member of Connect, you’ll attend a varied programme of evening and
weekend workshops and work with a range of professionals including composers, conductors, directors, designers, choreographers and singers. Once people
join, most choose to stay on and develop year on year with their friends –
come and join us!
September 2014 to April 2015
Connect Chorus auditions 2014/15 will be held:
Wednesday 15 to Friday 17January 2014, 5.30pm - 9.30pm
Application Deadline Monday 16 December 2013
To become a member of Connect Chorus you must be aged between 14 and 21
years old, have some performance experience and be able to read music. Entry is
by audition for our Summer Gateway Course (Tue 29 Jul to Sun 3 Aug 2014). This intensive, six-day programme explores opera through practical workshops and seminars and ends in a short performance for your family and friends.
Upon completion of our Gateway week, the final Connect Chorus selections for 2014/15 will be made. Workshop and weekend sessions will take place in Glasgow. There may be Scottish Opera performances and rehearsals that take place elsewhere but these will be indicated in advance.
