COSI 2019

The situation for summer programs is certainly changing. COSI 2019 is a response what singers and pianists have said they most:

  1. Make the cost accessible in view of the current Canadian international economy.
  2. Prioritize training and networking over productions, so it is cost optimized.
  3. Shorten the length of the program to reduce tuition and accommodation payments,
  4. Engage more European faculty, and
  5. Increase the daily length of the Italian classes.
