"During my time at MOS, I learned more in 4 weeks than during my 2 years in graduate school. Maestro Li Vigni carefully selects fantastic faculty who empower students to discover their full potential. Additionally, MOS provided us with confidence, experience, and invaluable information to help us succeed as emerging artists. I highly recommend this program to any singer who wishes to take their artistry to the next level." (Kara Smoot)
"MOS is a unique opportunity for singers who want to get a new insight in style, technique, and interpretation, with a special attention in Italian repertoire. Working in an open group of open, friendly people coming from all over the world, with different backgrounds and dreams is also definitely one of the best parts of the experience." (Sandrine Mairesse)
"Studying at the Mediterranean Opera Studio was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – it was truly a life AND voice changing experience. The daily work with outstanding teachers and coaches drastically changed my vocal abilities and I learned an incredible amount of practical and historical knowledge about performing and being an opera singer. The supportive community of staff and fellow singers made it possible to try new things without judgement, allowing you maximum growth during the program. It was hard work, but it was also a lot of fun and the friendships I made will last a lifetime!" (Melanie Anderson)
