2017 Young Artist Program Applications Open

    APPLICATIONS are open NOW on YAPTracker.com  Free accounts are available on YAPTracker for completing the application. Approximately 35 – 40 singers will be chosen for our 2017 Festival repertoire, including Janáček’s Příhody lišky Bystroušky (The Cunning Little Vixen, in Czech with chamber orchestra); Cavalli’s La Calisto (in Italian with period instrument ensemble); an “Untamed!” scenes program (to include excerpts from Pelléas and Mélisande, Rusalka, Don Pasquale, Carmen and more); and a song recital entitled “Wild Things.”

    This is an extended TUITION FREE program (some modest stipends available) featuring private coachings, master classes in languages, acting and style, an intense rehearsal process, and repertory performances of great operas, right in the heart of Manhattan! Most activities take place on weekday evenings and weekends to accommodate the schedules of singers still in transition between school and a full career.  For more information please see the Program Description.
