Discover your Voice!
Join Tony-nominated Broadway performer Lara Teeter and area university voice teachers in discovering your voice at Opera Theatre’s Sing Out vocal camp!
Through daily private lessons, master classes with Opera Theatre’s celebrated music staff and visiting artists, conversations with singers from the Gerdine Young Artists Program, and workshops in acting, auditioning, diction, and movement, students will experience what it is like to be a professional performer. The week culminates in a recital and theater scene performance for friends and family!
- Daily private voice lessons and vocal coaching
- Classes in movement, acting, dance, and fight choreography
- Conversations with OTSL artists and music staff
- An opera scene rehearsal and performance

Need based financial assistance is available, and no audition is necessary — but don’t wait, registration is limited!
