The Druid City Opera Workshop was recently featured in the January issue of Classical Singer Magazine. This is a vibrant and intensive week-long workshop including classes in acting, dance, combat, and music business along with master classes, private coachings, and performances of scenes and arias. The May time frame, and affordable fee, allows for Druid City to be conveniently paired with other programs later in the summer.
No application fee - March 15 application deadline. See website for easy instructions, faculty listing, and additional information.
