Are you a High School student considering getting a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance, Music Education, or Musical Theatre? Now is the time to start preparing for upcoming college-auditions! Boston Lyric Opera and VOICES Boston are teaming up to host a workshop for High School Juniors and Seniors who wish to gain important skills and tips to ace their college-audition or summer program audition experience.


When: Sunday, Oct. 10 & Monday, Oct. 11 

Time: Each day will be from 10:00am – 4:00pm

Where: First Parish in Brookline, MA (382 Walnut St. Brookline)

Covid-19 Protocols: We will be following the VOICES Boston safety protocols outlined on our website. Our singer’s safety is our top priority and we will be monitoring all recommendations as we approach the course dates. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Registration Deadline: October 1st, 2021

Fee: $175

What to prepare: All singers should bring one art song or musical theatre selection with them to work on over the course of the weekend. The selection should be memorized by the time it is performed at the workshop in order to get the most out of this experience.

What to expect: Participants will have the opportunity to sing for and get feedback from a distinguished panel of professionals working in the industry as well as work one on one in a masterclass setting with Patricia Au and Vera Savage, our wonderful workshop facilitators. During this two-day workshop, participants will work with acclaimed Boston Lyric Opera faculty Vera and Patricia on repertoire, resume, theatrical movement techniques, physicality, and characterization. Singers who have participated in this workshop in the past have gone on to attend highly accredited institutions and summer programs, such as The Eastman School of Music, New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, Northwestern University, Interlochen, and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.
