Community & Other Awards

This awards category recognises achievements in the very early years and the Youth Opera’s wider contribution both locally and internationally. Over the years our productions have successfully competed at various prestigious International Musical Festivals and we are particularly proud to have received recognition for the important role Youth Opera has in the Performing Arts and in the wider community.
