An international vision for aspiring singers
For ages 17-23 (or by faculty consent).
The Cowtown Opera Summer Academy (COSA) offers intensive short-term studies for singing students who wish to learn more about opera, art song, stagecraft and vocal health.

Led by professionals with international experience, students will benefit from instruction in small groups as well as in individual lessons. Focusing on developing young singers of the future, the workshop will include:
By the end of the week the aim is for each singer to have increased confidence in their artistry and performance skills as well as additional knowledge about vocal health, anatomy and pedagogy. A performance opportunity in the closing concert will be offered to every student.
