Palm Beach Opera Studio
Training the next generation of singers.
Palm Beach Opera Studio is a seven-month training program that fosters the skills high school students will need to pursue a successful music career in college and beyond. The Studio program is rigorous; the learning experience is exceptional and participants are held to high professional.
Performance Track: singers engage in private voice instruction, vocal coachings, masterclasses, and workshops led by a faculty of opera and music professionals. Participants are invited to attend working rehearsals, mainstage performances, and are given performance opportunities.
Arts Administration Track: members engage in one-on-one meetings with Palm Beach Opera Directors and Managers to discover how an opera company functions year round. Participants complete a series of projects relevant to their interests and are invited to attend working rehearsals and mainstage performances.
Studio is part of a unique three-tiered training system at Palm Beach Opera that includes the Apprentice Program and the Benenson Young Artist program.
