Audition Prep & Outreach
MetroWest Opera’s Audition Preparation Evenings
Back by popular demand, MetroWest Opera is pleased to bring you even MORE Audition Preparation Evenings in the 2016/2017 Season. Our Audition Prep Evenings are a chance for emerging professional opera singers to…
- Try out new repertoire, including arias, oratorio, art songs, and legit musical theatre pieces
- Receive written, anonymous feedback from your peer singers (optional)
- Experiment with musical and dramatic interpretation
- Gain the experience of singing pieces before using said arias in real auditions
Each audition preparation evening is 2 hours and limited to 12 participants, with each singer entitled to 10-12 minutes of singing time with pianist.
Cost is $25 per participant.
* Note: In order for each participant to fairly get the greatest amount of constructive feedback, we ask each participant to stay for the entire 2 hours, even if you sing first. Singers will benefit the most from the greatest variety and diversity of opinion when it comes to their singing and interpretation. If you have a specific reason for attending late or leaving early please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to accommodate you.
MetroWest Opera’s In-School Outreach Program
Program Title: The Journey of Opera
Age Group: Elementary and Middle School
Program Length: 45-50 Minutes
MetroWest Opera is committed to sharing the joy of opera with all of MetroWest Boston’s children. Our outreach vocal quartet has prepared an interactive educational program which traces operas from four major time periods. Four vocalists perform and teach young audiences with entertaining interpretations of operas from different composers and historical eras. The musicians will perform duets, trios, and quartets from various operas. The program will be presented in a quiz show format and students will have many opportunities to participate. The program also features a Q&A session that allows artists to talk about their backgrounds, training, and professional careers.
