YALA Summer Vocal Institute
YALA is back and better than ever for 2017! Florida Grand Opera (FGO) proudly announces our second year of YALA—Youth Artist Learning Academy. If you are an aspiring young classical singer, have a talent in creating the magic of the backstage world, or are a budding opera aficionado, this is the program for you! Held in FGO’s authentic professional rehearsal studios, YALA is a three-week day-camp program where participants receive invaluable hands-on experience with leading industry professionals and performers. Each instructor at YALA is a nationally-acclaimed specialist in their field, selected specifically to offer participants a broad and accurate view of the world of opera. All participants will take a number of fun and engaging classes ranging from performance and diction to design and production. In addition, YALA participants will attend exclusive workshops with Florida Grand Opera senior staff, master classes with industry luminaries and master teachers, and roundtable discussions with mainstage FGO singers. The three weeks at YALA will conclude with a showcase performance in the Balfe Studio where opera stars from across the globe have rehearsed for Florida Grand Opera productions over the years. NEW FOR 2017: Participants who graduate from YALA 2017 will have the fantastic opportunity to repeat their final showcase in a professional performance at the brand new Pompano Beach Cultural Arts Center on the afternoon of September 16, 2017! Applications will be accepted until all spaces have been filled. Space is limited.
