Streetwise Opera performer Anita Ferguson writes about her experience taking part in our recent performance The World Is My Song at Manchester Art Gallery:

I love singing our workshops at Manchester Art Gallery. We pass stunning artworks as we go in, and I'm already energised and full of anticipation. At this term's first rehearsal, there was great excitement: "We have windows! We have sunlight!" We've been lucky to have several tours in the gallery from curators and also dabbled in a bit of art for ourselves.
