Join the Garsington Opera Youth Company

"What's so great about Garsington Opera is how inclusive it is. I've never had a singing lesson yet I feel comfortable."
Youth Company member

Garsington Opera's Youth Company provides young people aged 9-25 with the opportunity to develop their singing, creative skills, confidence and stage experience through the exciting world of opera. Productions take place every summer at Garsington Opera, with rehearsals local to High Wycombe and the surrounding area. Application is via the form below and membership is through annual workshop auditions. No experience is necessary as we welcome young people from all backgrounds with enthusiasm and a zest for performing. All places are fully-funded and awarded on potential rather than prior experience.

Backstage opportunities are also available for young people aged 13-25 to work with various professionals, including the designer or stage manager. Youth Company members are also offered the opportunity to undertake their Arts Award through Garsington Opera.
