Dixon Stage Left: The Canterbury Concerts Vocal Scholarship 2023!


The Canterbury Concert Series started in 1984 with the aim to bring world-class music to the Dixon, Illinois area, just 100 miles west of Chicago. In the years since, it has hosted musical artists from across the globe and highlighted some of the Midwest’s finest in classical and jazz. As a well-established local organization, the people behind the Canterbury Concert Series believe that community engagement and supporting the arts requires building relationships with established artists and young musicians and investing in the future together. 

This year Canterbury Concerts is partnering with the Academia Vocale di Lorenzo Malfatti in Lucca, Italy, to award a promising young singer with a guaranteed spot in the month-long vocal and Italian language summer training program, as well as a full-tuition scholarship, a prize totaling near $10k USD. 

Faculty of the highest quality will work with you to help you improve your craft.
Native speakers will teach you Italian in small groups.
Away from the pressures of college and career, you can truly focus on improving your skills.
We are proud to offer:
1.     2 sixty-minute voice lessons per week (one with each voice faculty member)
2.     2 thirty minute coachings per week
3.     Italian language classes five days a week
4.     Studio voice class
5.     Private dramatic coachings

Concerts in and around Lucca will showcase your progress and give you the unforgettable experience of singing in Italian to an Italian audience. Our final concert will feature operatic ensembles.
