In collaboration with the Brevard Music Center, we will explore the operas to be performed this summer by the young singers/students of the Janiec Opera Company at the Brevard Music Center. Classes will include performances and discussions with students, stage directors, and conductors. Participants will describe their own personal journeys and the ways in which they are trained for an opera career.
