Secondary In-School Workshop
Suitable for Years 6 to 12
Terms 1 to 4
Developed from Opera Queensland’s successful Moving Opera program, Vocal Threads takes music and arts learning into largely Indigenous-populated schools and communities. Students are introduced to musical theatre and opera traditions and encouraged to explore their own heritage through music, visual arts and dance, with the support of Opera Queensland artists and an Indigenous artist from another discipline.
Recommended for secondary schools with a significant enrolment of students who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
‘Meeting opera singers first hand excited me the most. I thought that this would be a great opportunity to gain some skills for my own benefit in singing.’ Student, Western Cape College
