On the 23rd of March we were very lucky to take part in a workshop with Ian and Huw Ynyr from Mid Wales Opera. How exciting to have a world-renowned opera singer in our school!
Huw and Ian visited our school and we listened to, sang and even wrote our own ‘recitative’ (which is the narrative or plot of the story. We watched clips from The Barber of Seville, The Marriage of Figaro and looked closely at the instruments used in the orchestra. We learnt to sing an aria from The Magic Flute. We enjoyed working together in groups and loved singing with Huw. At the end of the session, we performed the song we had learnt for the school eisteddfod to Huw and Ian-they were very impressed!
