Schoolchildren have a higher success rate if they have a daily dose of music, says Anna Pierard.
The Hawke’s Bay opera singer recently completed a mission to the UK to speak to the chair of the Commonwealth Education Trust about offering opportunities to young people who are thinking of a career in opera overseas.
She also used the opportunity to grow her existing programme – Project Prima Volta – which uses opera as an educative tool, accessible to all young people regardless of their circumstances.
“The point of the trip was to establish relationships which will be really important further down the line and build awareness about what we’re doing in Hawke’s Bay,” Pierard says.
