Artistic Director Mark Vuorinen invites vocal artists to apply for the Elora Singers Vocal Academy, from April 29 - May 4, 2024. This program has been developed for vocalists whose interests lie in art song, oratorio and ensemble singing.
Six to eight qualified singers (SATB) will be invited to participate and be coached by Academy Faculty and join the acclaimed Elora Singers in a concert as part of the Elora Singers 2023/24 season.
Together, academy singers will explore ways to communicate vocal repertoire more vividly, experience a broad range of vocal repertoire and examine all aspects of style, technique, communication, language, performance skills, and artistry.
Applicants should have advanced vocal training from a recognized post-secondary music program (undergraduate or graduate program) or the equivalent in training/performance experience.
There is no age limit.
The Vocal Academy program will take place in Guelph, ON.
