2017 Opera Workshop for Advanced Singers

July 24 - July 30, 2017

Over the course of the past twenty-two years, this workshop has gained a national reputation as the place for singers to come for an intense, artistic growth experience. Our workshop seeks to bridge the gap between voice student and young professional.

The faculty works as a team to guide each of the eighteen singers towards being a more polished and free artist. The workshop is process oriented and while there is no public performance, scene study and masterclasses provide vehicles for new concepts.

Professional Development Intensive - August 1-5 - for established professional singers (by invitation only)
