Young singers will have the opportunity to experience performing in a professional setting and alongside professional opera singers during a one time performance which will play out on a Dubbo stage.
Singers 10 to 14-years-of-age are invited to register with Macquarie Conservatorium Dubbo as it seeks its 2021 Youth Chorus to perform in the touring Opera Australia production CARMEN.
The Opera Australia's touring production of CARMEN is a one performance which will be held at the Dubbo Regional Theatre on June 19, 2021.
Macquarie Conservatorium Director, Vivienne Winther said it is an opportunity for young singers to develop vocal and stage performance skills.
"They'll experience the thrill of performing onstage in a professional opera production, in full costume, alongside professional opera singers, with an orchestra and conductor," Ms Winther said.
"We are looking for children who can sing in tune and enjoy performing.
"Our Youth Chorus performed in two previous Opera Australia productions at Dubbo Regional Theatre and both were great experiences."
Ms Winther said registrations online now to attend a selection workshop this March are open to both boys and girls within the required age bracket who are in interested in trying out for a place in the Chorus.
"Before registering their child to try out, parents should check their child is available for all rehearsals, and of course the performance," Ms Winther said.
"Weekly Chorus rehearsals will be held at Macquarie Conservatorium Dubbo on Wednesdays at 6.00pm, from the start of Term two until the performance on June 19.
"Opera Australia will conduct a special Chorus workshop after school in the week before the performance.
"On Saturday, June 19, the Chorus is required to be at the Theatre from 3.30 pm until the end of the performance at around 10.30pm."
Registration for the Selection Workshop closes Tuesday March 16.
