WHAT WE DO
During our first year at Wormsley (2010-11) Garsington Opera Education established important relationships with schools and communities in the surrounding area.
The aim of the 2012-13 programme is to build on the relationships we have developed so far, and to expand the reach of the our work even further, by producing a large-scale community opera. The work will be performed at Wormsley as part of the 2013 season.
We are very grateful to The Alchemy Trust , the Bergqvist Charitable Trust, CHK Charities Limited, and the Garfield Weston Foundation for their invaluable support of our Education programme.
If you would like to support this important but lesser known aspect of our work, please email Johnny Langridge or call him on 01865 368201.
