Inter-generational Opera Project
Intergenerational Opera were delighted to connect pupils of St Peter’s with elderly members of the community in a singing workshop at Lewes Depot. The idea of the project was to encourage communication through music, exploring different themes and ideas culminating in a much closer, more positive relationship between the two generations. The children were enthusiastic and engaged creatively in the music making and we were inspired and impressed by their openness and warmth towards the elderly participants. As the project escalated it was noticeable to see the communicative barriers being broken down and a general openness within the room and by the end the first stages of relationships had been achieved.
