(Photograph) - Teaching children the joys of communicating with music - that's the aim of Clonter Opera. Young singers visit schools around the northwest of England, giving workshops, demonstrating warm-up exercises and exploring music as a means of expression. This year, they will also explain the plot of La Boh me and introduce its characters, and pupils will have the chance to see the whole opera at the theatre of the Clonter Farm Music Trust in Cheshire. Workshops are for children aged six and up, to a maximum of 60 children, and cost pound;4 per child, excluding transport to and from the theatre. Call 01260 224558. More details are available on www.clonteropera.com.
