Are you a teen who loves to sing and perform? Are you planning to pursue a college degree in vocal performance?
The Teen Vocal Studio is a unique training program for young Pacific Northwest Singers considering a future in music and opera. As a member of the Teen Vocal Studio, you’ll join one of North America’s leading opera companies to learn first-hand about pursuing a career in vocal performance. Seattle Opera will complement your own private lessons, helping you build many other necessary performance skills with workshops in musicianship, drama, auditions, lyric diction (IPA), and more. In addition, you will gain recital and performance experience—including a performance in a production of a complete opera as part of the Youth Opera Project. Studio members receive special access to company rehearsals and masterclasses with Seattle Opera’s renowned artists.
Teen Vocal Studio commitments will primarily take place on Thursday evenings beginning at 4:30 PM and Saturdays beginning at 10 AM. A detailed schedule will be available closer to the beginning of the program.
In accordance with the latest public health policies from Govern Inslee and King County Public Health, auditions for the 2020/21 Teen Vocal Studio are postponed and will be rescheduled for later in the year. We will reopen auditions when a new date has been identified.
Teen Vocal Studio auditions are open to current high school students (except graduating seniors).
Singers should prepare one or two folk song selections in any language for their audition. An accompanist will be provided.
