Support conductor Timothy Burke and the North Shields community in raising £2000 to prove the potential for opera in this region

by Tim Burke in North Shields, England, United Kingdom

My name is Timothy Burke and I'm an opera conductor living in the North East. 

I've spent the last year talking to people about tapping the amazing creative potential in this area to make opera. I think we could create something really spectacular here. 

I'm working with partners Tête à Tête (an opera company) and the Royal Northern Sinfonia, along with two local community choirs (Can't Sing Choir & Backworth Male Voice Choir), a dance group (Falling On Your Feet), director Bill Bankes-Jones and soloist Anna Huntley.

Over 150 people are coming together to explore music, storytelling and movement, and this first step is designed to demonstrate just how far this could go.

Please help us raise £2,000 to make this happen.
