Hi, we’re the UWL Opera Society! If you’re interested in singing, performing and generally having fun whilst learning new repertoire, this is the place to be! We’re an inclusive society that welcomes anyone, regardless of ability.
Most of our members had never even sang opera before joining, but now we have an amazing group of classical singers and we want to expand our opera family. We have plenty of opportunities for solos, duets and chorus pieces, and we will hopefully be performing a Christmas concert and another concert in the Spring.
We are currently organising some other exciting performances! As well as this, we have many other fundraising events and socials, which we are very much looking forward to. Feel free to get in touch with us on social media!
