APU Opera offers high-level training and performance opportunities to those desiring to use their gifts as a performer, arts administrator, or music educator. A young artist receives music and language coaching, and opportunities for training in stagecraft, acting, make-up, improvisation, and dance. Equally important is our purposeful guidance to help young singers become colleagues of integrity in a highly competitive and challenging field.
An integral component of APU Opera is outreach and education. We offer free performances to local school children at area schools with large marginalized populations and schools void of a music program, along with APU student-created opera educational materials. One of our core beliefs is that students need to learn ways to use their gifts to give back to the community and make the world a better place.
APU Opera not only offers excellent training, but it provides a supportive and encouraging environment where singers of all levels can grow and develop, reaching their fullest potential.
Whether you are a young singer, or one who appreciates opera and supports our performances, we hope to see you soon. Learn more about our season, scholarships and auditions, and support opportunities today!
