Are you planning to pursue a college degree in vocal performance?
The Teen Vocal Studio is a select group of the Pacific Northwest’s finest young singers created to help you build your skills and prepare your résumé for college. 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 stagecraft, lyric diction (IPA), drama, movement, and musicianship. In addition, you will gain recital and performance experience—including a performance in a production of a complete opera. Studio members receive special access to company rehearsals, meet-and-greet receptions, 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 merit-based scholarship.
