CLA’s two programs share a unique approach to studying classical singing through an authentic journey into the heart of French and Italian opera. In addition, our teachers are undisputed masters who offer incomparable insight into this art form, as living links to the great composers and opera’s glorious traditions.
Vocal artistry is complemented by lessons in language, diction and stage movement, culminating in numerous performances in a variety of historic theaters and venues throughout the local region. Within this fully supportive environment, our participants gain an essential understanding of the masterworks and the legacy of the great singers and composers of the past, something they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Along the way they discover who they are and who they will become as artists.
