GYO Solo

What is GYO Solo?

GYO Solo is a vocal talent development project for singers in GYO2 with outstanding potential interested in developing their solo voice. The project is lead by Glyndebourne Youth Opera’s Vocal Talent Consultant Mary King who is joined by Composer Fraser Trainer and Soprano Nicole Tibbels. The project consisted of an intensive series of workshops, during which participants had the chance to work with the team on vocal technique, performance skills, drama and movement.

GYO Solo is for those who love singing and would like to develop their classical voice and potential as a soloist in dramatic genres such as opera and musical theatre. Extensive prior experience of opera or solo singing is not a prerequisite, nor is it essential to have already had singing lessons, but some working understanding of musical notation would be an advantage.


Places on GYO Solo are subject to an application process. Details of this will be released online and to our Glyndebourne Youth Opera mailing list.

If you have any further questions about the project, please contact the education department using the details below and a member of the team will be happy to help.
