About our Education & Community Programme

Since April 2021 the National Opera House has embarked on its first dedicated Education Programme. We were fortunate to receive funding from Wexford Leader (Local Development) so that we could really start on a cohesive programme of events that addressed our aims to both provide events at the NOH itself and in the community of County Wexford.  

For us, education is right across the age spectrum – so from early years up to later years. We therefore aimed at programming events that are interactive, informative and entertaining. However, the continuing restriction of  in-person activity meant that nearly all our events so far have been online; but we have not let this deter us!  The musicians and audiences have really risen to the occasion and embraced their inner technology expertise through the use of – well, you know…

So, who has been leading these events?  Meet the fantastic team of musicians – all of which are highly experienced in education work: Anita Vedres, Malachy Robinson, Síle Daly, Deirdre O’Leary, Elizabeth Drwal, Aileen Donohue, Peter McCamley, Ross Scanlon, Susan Doyle, Aura Stone, and soon to join us: Aisling Kenny, Kelli-Ann Masterson and Deirdre Higgins.  We are so excited to have these musicians working with us here at the National Opera House.  Full details on each of the musicians are here.
