Telling stories with music

For children who love to sing and play, Dutch National Opera organises a weekly children's chorus. Accompanied by a pianist and a singing and acting teacher, you get to work with (contemporary) opera repertoire. Besides working with existing repertoire, we will also create new repertoire together: new stories that we will tell with music. That way, you learn to sing and to tell stories with music.

There are two groups: group I for children aged 5 to 8 and group II for children aged 9 to 12. Do you like singing and acting? And are you between 5 and 12 years old? Then sign up for Opera Heroes!

Artistic coordination & musical direction: Hanne van de Vrie and Ineke Geleijns
