A uniquely designed 8-week program for the pre-professional classical vocalist who is looking to refine their skills in role preparation and presentation.
Innovation is the name of the game for us in this digital age. So too, did Kurt Weill, Langston Hughes, and Elmer Rice innovate in 1946 when they collaborated to write the extraordinary American opera, STREET SCENE. With the complex, tragic, fun & funny cast of Street Scene as the focus of our Spring Session, guest director, Dan Wallace Miller will take us on a deep-dive into the tools required to build a three-dimensional character within a larger story.

"YAAClassical: Voice has emerged at a time of great need in our artistic community, filling a void of art and collaboration, and creating a place to finally come together again to make music. I am proud to be part of a community that is ambitious and constantly seeking to better itself. The YAAClassical: Voice team has created a rigorous, productive, engaging and uplifting space to learn even within the limitations of the virtual space!"
- Rachel Hahn, soprano (2020 Participant)
“Young Artists of America provided me with so many wonderful gifts! Excellent and effective focus on communication was not only provided to me personally, but I also got to see great teaching and learning between the staff and students in real time.
Training included: the art and science of singing, the art of performing, the art of language, vocal technique, and musicianship. Arianna, Joy and Rolando (all previously admired artists) lead classes dedicated to excellence and never slacked in their commitment, sharpness, and encouragement to guide us to better ourselves. My admiration grew! It’s a truly impressive program.
My fellow colleagues were all talented and contributed to a space of beautiful encouragement (even through constructive feedback). I literally have my own professional website up and running because of this program, and I’ve gained colleagues, friends, resources, and guides. I have gained more confidence and grew as an artist. Thank you YAA!”
