Three Tracks of Study
Young Artist Program is for more advanced singers. Applicants admitted to this program will sing roles in the final fully-staged productions.
Studio Program is for singers looking to improve their skills in a nurturing, yet intensive environment. Participants selected for this program will sing ensemble roles in the productions. Studio participants may qualify to move up to the Young Artist Program. If they elect to do so, their tuition will increase to the Young Artist Program tuition.
Directing Internships are designed for a collegiate voice teacher who directs opera or an aspiring stage director. The selected intern(s) will receive an award of full tuition.
