The Tomita Young Artist training program is intended for singers and pianists who demonstrate outstanding potential and who are seeking professional level training and performance experience. Young Artists have the opportunity to perform alongside FLO's professional artists and creative team and will be in residence during the summer season (July 8 - August 8); plus the possibility of an additional commitment for one week TBD in August or October. The 2021 season features fully staged productions including The Barber of Seville, a children's opera, and an opera scenes concert, as well as a concert of opera arias, ensembles, and musical theatre selections with the Finger Lakes Opera Orchestra.
All participants are paid a weekly stipend, a travel stipend, and are provided housing.
Auditions will be held virtually this season via YAP Tracker: 2021 Tomita Young Artist Application. Application deadline: January 4.
