Youth Chorus for “Song of Our Heartland”

We are looking for young people to perform on stage in our community opera next May.  We have teamed up with Opera North to create a new community opera that will be performed in the Exhibition Hall at Locomotion, Shildon at the end of May 2020.

The original story features a group of youngsters who are determined to sing together despite having lost their school music teacher.  The company are now looking for young people to create a fictional youth choir for the show and take part in rehearsals and four performances.

An open rehearsal for young people interested in joining the youth chorus will be held on Sunday, 2nd February 202 from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm at Greenfield Community College, Jubilee Road, Shildon, DL4 2EP

This is a fantastic opportunity for young people interested in performing.  You don’t have to belong to an existing choir or to have previous singing experience – just be confident, enjoy being on stage and prepared to commit to the rehearsals and performances.  The characters in the show are aged about 15 – but you just have to look 15, so you could be younger or older.

Anyone interested in taking part in the audition or just wanting further information is asked to contact Northern Heartlands by :
