Chorus mentoring

Launched in 2012, the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance chorus mentor scheme offers selected students on the MMus programme the opportunity to work closely with the ENO chorus.

This placement is a specialist option component of their course and enables the students to experience the working life of an individual within the chorus, thereby gaining an insight into the expectations and demands of the profession and an awareness of current issues and debates.

During the placement the students observe a number of sitzprobe, production and stage rehearsals, as well as participating in selected music calls with the chorus.

As part of the scheme each student is assigned a mentor within the chorus and has the opportunity to discuss general topics of interest with ENO music director and head of music.
