The program will include:

  • Voice Lessons
  • Mozart Ensembles
  • Recitative Work
  • Movement/Stage Craft
  • Masterclasses


Faculty will guide artists in building practical tools on how to:

  • search for the simplest way to communicate text honestly and creatively;
  • cohesively merge musical expression and healthy vocal technique, unimpeded by tension;
  • discover essential and unique beauty of sound, through the sentiments being expressed;
  • explore multiple angles/multiple approaches to a piece of music;
  • work linguistically on recitative, solos and ensembles within a Mozart role;
  • communicate textual and musical content through organic movement.


The program will culminate in a final concert on JANUARY 25, 2018.

The concert will be open to the public and professionally recorded. Recordings will be provided to participants free of charge.
