OUTREACH SKILLS: workshop for singers

In the framework of the enoa (European Network of Opera Academies) network’s Young Opera Makers programme, the Académie of the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence organised from 22 to 25 January 2016 at the Darius Milhaud Conservatoire of Aix-en-Provence, a workshop on outreach skills for singers based on improvisation and creation techniques to touch young people and those unable to go to performances. Mark Withers (community education project leader for the LSO Discovery) and Sybille Wilson (stage director) led this workshop. The Relay singers put the lessons learned into practice with young pupils from the Jas de Bouffan high school in Aix-en-Provence.
