For the third year, the 2017 Vocal Academy at Stratford Summer Music will offer intensive training in professional preparation (opera, oratorio, art song) and in performance skills for up to eight graduate, post-graduate and early professional-level singers and for two pianists pursuing a career in vocal accompaniment. Participants will receive daily individual sessions with the internationally renowned Faculty and will take part in master classes which will be open to the public. The program will culminate in a public performance by Faculty and participants.
Save the dates! Sign your child up to make new friends, discover new interests, build confidence, and have lots of fun. Campers will playfully explore opera as both creators and performers. Additional details about this enriching performing arts experience to come.
