Are you a teen who loves to sing and perform? Are you planning to pursue a college degree in music or vocal performance?

The Teen Vocal Studio is a unique training program for high school singers considering a future in music and opera. As a member of Teen Vocal Studio, you will have the chance to participate in masterclasses with mainstage singers, workshops ranging in topics from diction to auditions, and have multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. Studio members will also receive special access to company rehearsals, engage with industry professionals, and gain a better understanding of opera and what it means to pursue a career in opera and the performing arts. While we require all participants to study privately with a voice teacher during their time in Teen Vocal Studio, studio members will receive one on one vocal coachings with Seattle Opera teaching artists and staff, and gain important skills to enhance their abilities as musicians and performers.


September 2021-April 2022; Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons
A detailed schedule will be available closer to the start of the program


Auditions for the 2021/22 Teen Vocal Studio will take place on Saturday, July 31 and Saturday, August 7 at the Opera Center.



As part of our commitment to equity, Seattle Opera is dedicated to providing programs that are accessible to everyone in our community, regardless of financial standing. Fees for our programs are offered on a voluntary sliding scale, and we ask that each family choose the level that best fits their ability to pay. All participants receive the same instruction regardless of payment level. If none of these options work for you, please contact us to request financial assistance.
