UVAA takes special pride in developing high school aged voices. Our high school singers frequently win Sterling Scholar recognition, NATS competitions, Solo and Ensemble Superiors, Classical Singer Competition, Youngarts Competition, school musicals and scholarships to fantastic collegiate vocal programs. You'll be amazed what you can accomplish with us!
Summer Youth Opera Camp
Every July, UVAA produces a voice camp specifically tailored to young singers, age 14-18. We provide lessons, coachings, and acting training, and culminate in performances of opera and musical theater scenes and solo recitals. Our goal is to give young singers interested in classical singing a great place to develop that side of their voice and explore repertoire that would otherwise go unexplored. Our 2020 camp will be an all online event. Join us!
Studying voice can be an expensive endeavor, and not every family can afford the best training. Dr. Hurtado provides a few limited partial scholarships each year to high school aged singers who demonstrate potential in opera and have financial need. If you are in high school and interested in this opportunity, click below to fill out an application. Mention your interest in a scholarship in the comments box and our staff will set up an audition for you!
