Glyndebourne Family Opera Makers

In collaboration with Battle Festival, Glyndebourne Family Opera Makers offered the opportunity to join acclaimed composer and musician Fraser Trainer and a team of musicians for two nights of singing, exploration and musical fun. Using the human voice as the starting point, Fraser facilitated the group to generate ideas, collaborate on musical structures and unearth inner creativity as a starting point towards making a new opera.

These sessions were aimed at young people aged between 9 and 19 and accompanying parents/carers.

Fraser Trainer is in demand throughout the world both as a composer and as a leader of innovative, creative and practical composition projects for professionals and non-professionals alike. Between 1999 and 2007 Fraser was Creative Director of the London Sinfonietta’s award winning education programme.
