Canto Vocal Programs offers intensive programs in Toulouse (April) and Zagreb (July) offering musical and dramatic coaching, voice lessons, small performance classes and a final gala concert. This coming April 16-28 in Toulouse singers have the opportunity to work with artists from the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro Comunale di Bologna and Les Maîtres Sonneurs.
This year, in addition to the regular program we are adding a Role Study track: a cast of selected singers will be working on Così fan tutte. We also encourage singers interested in role study to suggest a role they would like to work on individually.

Some comments from previous participants:
The two intensive weeks of coaching in Toulouse have been a truly transformative journey of exponential (inner and technical) growth. What makes this program so special? I believe that Canto has a sort of “secret sauce”, which is the result of great dedication, authenticity, and labor of love. It is this sauce that allowed each and every participant in the program to step out of one’s own comfort zone to have tremendous improvement in vocal and expressive performance.
