Summer Opera Institute

University of Central Florida and Opera Orlando co-sponsor this intensive, ten-day program for high school and college-aged singers interested in exploring classical vocal music and developing their singing/acting skills. The program is ideal for singers interested in pursuing a music education or performance career. Activities include voice lessons, coaching on solos and duets, master classes, stage movement classes, diction classes, audition preparation, and a final concert at the end of the program.

Information for the 2018 Summer Opera Institute will be available in the Spring of 2018.
