Audition Workshop on Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Boston Singers' Resource is thrilled to announce the first BSR Workshop: Auditions! Hosted by Dana Varga, Phil Lauriat, Elaine Crane, and Angela Jajko, join us for an interactive session combining panel discussion and demonstration, master class coaching, and Q&A. Our panelists bring deep experience from different areas of the business relevant to Boston-based singers: regional professional opera, young artist programs, college/conservatory, community theater, and open auditions for opera, operetta, oratorio, and musical theatre. Learn what works and what doesn't work for different levels and genres, what matters to specific auditioners and companies, and what are best practices for achieving success on one of the many paths to a singing career. Up to ten singers will have the opportunity to master class with the panel on the audition piece of their choice, so register early to get a chance at one of these spots! All registrants are welcome to participate in the interactive discussion and Q&A sessions to talk about specific questions or issues, so bring your resume, headshot, aria or song list, and/or audition outfit to ask for specific feedback. All levels welcome.
