Forty students from year 7 to year 11 took part in the Looping the Loop Music Project. The workshop took place over two days, with composer Jon Barber and members of Garsington Opera who worked with students to explore the themes and story of Eugene Onegin.
Students had the opportunity to sing with professional opera singers and compose their own music. On Thursday October 2016 pupils performed their own compositions and scenes of the opera alongside five other primary and secondary schools.
On Wednesday 29 March members of the choir and GCSE music students descended on London to take part in a movement and voice workshop at Pineapple Studios in Covent Garden.
Students worked on creating four part harmonies based around the Lion King and even rehearsed a choreographed section of The Musical.
The group went on to watch the award winning musical at The Lyceum Theatre, which was absolutely brilliant. An excellent time was had by all.
