Vocal Arts Festival 2016 Application FINAL

Opera Theatre of the Rockies is excited to announce its 15th Summer Vocal Arts Festival and Young Artists Intensive Training Program to be held on the Colorado College campus from July 10-24. The Summer Season opens with a family-oriented benefit event sponsored by the Pikes Peak Opera League. Details can be found by visiting the League’s web site at www.pikespeakoperaleague.org.

Opera Theatre’s 2016 Vocal Arts Festival and Yong Artists Intensive Training Program will feature young singers from middle school age through post-college/young professionals who gather from across the U.S. to participate in intensive voice, acting, movement, dance and auditioning classes along with individualized vocal coaching sessions. There will be Scenes Concerts presented for the public’s enjoyment with Festival singers along with guest artists in costumed and fully-staged scenes from opera and musical theater. These performances have been most popular with audiences from around the Region. Tickets will go on sale in late spring, so please visit Opera Theatre’s web site for more information about exact dates, times, locations and ticket pricing. Later in the spring, sometime after June 1 you may call our ticket line at 646-3127 to order tickets.

This beloved community Vocal Arts Festival and Intensive Training Program enhances Colorado Springs’ summer music scene, while underlining the company’s mission to provide training to young singers developing a career path. Opera Theatre of the Rockies is proud to announce its upcoming full two-week schedule with group participant classes open to the public for audit, like last year. These talented young artists not only represent our community’s best vocal arts students but also hail from across the country, sharing wonderful feedback about the benefits of gaining such valuable stage experience and coaching by expert faculty who are masters in their fields, while being able to network with young professionals as well. Please join our audiences for this wonderful Festival and Program.

Praise for Opera Theatre of the Rockies’ production of Cosi fan tutte

“A musical spell was cast last night at First Christian Church in downtown Colorado Springs. For those who were enchanted by it, it is unlikely that its musical beauty and theatrical magic will release them anytime soon… the ebullience and engagement of “Women are Like That,” Cosi’s English title, was finely wrought.” David Sckolnik, Gazette
