With so many opportunities listed on YAP Tracker, it can be difficult to weigh one program against all other available options. One YAP Tracker member, Dabney Ross Jones, shares on her blog why she has chosen to participate in the Salzburg Voice Festival program this summer.

We'll look forward to following up with Dabney after her summer in Salzburg to see how the program has helped her to attain her current career objective! Toi, toi, toi Dabney, and best wishes for a fulfilling adventure!
