No audition is necessary to participate in the Wesley Balk Opera/Music-Theater Institute. Participants are accepted in the order received. However, we do request that performers submit two contrasting audio files, so that we may cast you in appropriate scenes with appropriate partners. You may email your MP3 files to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to label your files with your last name, and identify your selections in your email.
The Balk Institute is held on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. We will be following all COVID protocols required by the University, as determined by the State of Minnesota. As of this writing, those protocols are still to be determined. We will keep participants informed as we know more.
