Taos Opera Institute 2018: Apply now!


Taos Opera Institute (TOI) in 2007 by Mary Jane Johnson and Linda Poetschke and we are taking applications for our 11th season!

28 singers will be chosen to participate in interactive sessions with distinguished guests and professional artists, focusing on competition psychology, performance anxiety, audition strategies, stage deportment, dramatic interpretation and vocal stability. 

Our program centers not only on You, the singer, but YOU, the complete person.  Every participant discovers physical awareness through daily fitness sessions including yoga, pilates, weight training, and varied cardio routines, including hikes through the gorgeous mountains of the Taos Ski Valley.

The serene European-like TOI mountain setting is the perfect place to explore yourself as a singer and performer.

Faculty this summer includes Teachers: Mary Jane Johnson, Linda Poetschke, Patrick Raftery, Faith Esham, and Stanford Olsen. Coaches: Jan McDaniel, David Wilkinson, Cheryl Cellon Lindquist, and Robert Mills.
Guest Faculty: Mark Moliterno, Eric Barry, Daniel Welch, Cynthia Stokes and Michael Ching.
