> The Program Goals
The Singing Artists Program was established by Resonanz Opera for singers seeking vocal study who want to bring their talent to the mainstage. The program was created to provide formal vocal education and the professional development of emerging opera singers at all stages of their career. Through this program Resonanz Opera also brings the national opera scene and local talent together with the Singing Artists and the program faculty.
Singing Artists will receive voice instruction and coaching for their roles in the program performances. Additionally, Singing Artists will perform in the smaller roles of the mainstage production and they will cover the bigger roles. Our "Complete Singer" Program, in partnership with The Fit Singer, offers instruction to encourage a healthy "mind-body-voice" connection and a lasting foundation of wellness and focus for developing singers in a positive mindset.
> A Program For All Singers
The Singing Artists Program is unique and forward-thinking. Resonanz Opera offers role opportunities to artists of all ages and stages of development in a supportive and positive environment dedicated to study and performance. There is no age limit to audition or work with Resonanz Opera. Resonanz Opera also loudly rejects all forms of discrimination for personal characteristics or traits and encourages every singer with a good voice and a desire to work to apply for an audition. The Singing Artists Program is also actively reaching out to more kinds of singers and is aimed at the development of different specific types of voices and every age and stage of artistic development. The Resonanz Opera Singing Artists Program is for *all opera singers*.
