English National Opera Takeover day
At St Paul’s, we have been lucky enough to organise a year- long partnership with the English National Opera (ENO) with a takeover day being the 'launch day' of the partnership. On Thursday 5th October, students and staff experienced the beginning of this fantastic partnership. Throughout the day there were a number of workshops taking place for Music and Drama students, as well as choir and band members. Along with these workshops there were also 'Pop up' performances throughout the day hosted by members of the ENO.
Lorna Donlon, Music Subject Lead at St Paul’s has expressed how delighted she is at securing this partnership. ‘This unique opportunity will broaden the students’ cultural horizons, stimulate their imagination, and allow them to experience first-hand the art-form that comes closest to expressing pure emotion’. Students will also visit the Coliseum to watch performances and meet staff and artists backstage and also participate in workshops. It was truly an enjoyable day for all!
