We know times are hard and every little helps, whether it’s £5 or £500, a single one off donation or a monthly contribution. 

CYO broadens the creative horizons of young people through opera. We work with children, young people and schools to create age appropriate activities to the highest possible standard. We are an open access, community organisation and a registered charity. We do not charge for participation.

Our activities include everything that goes to make up an opera, onstage and backstage from composition and writing to production and performance. Many of the young people who take part have never experienced opera before. We welcome a diverse range of children and young people from across the community in which we work, bringing together young people living parallel lives in a shared love of the arts.

By providing easily accessible, exciting activities, we open up what is often considered an exclusive art form, cultivate the arts as a natural part of daily life, and grow the confidence of our participants. We believe that opera is ideal for this, as it encompasses such a variety of elements and the opportunity to thrill, move and amuse both participants and audiences.
