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 created to help you enhance your skills as a performer as well as your résumé. 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 as a singer. Seattle Opera will complement your own private lessons with your teacher, helping you build many other necessary performance skills with workshops in musicianship, drama, auditions, and lyric diction (IPA). 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.
Teen Vocal Studio is a college preparatory program. All singers accepted into the program will receive a full scholarship.
Auditions for the 2019/20 Teen Vocal Studio are on Saturday, May 18 and are open to current high school students (except graduating seniors).
Singers should prepare one or two art song selections in any language for their audition. Singers who are not currently studying with a private voice teacher should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss additional options for their audition.
Auditions will take place at The Opera Center, 363 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA 98109. An accompanist will be provided.
