The Program for Singers offers a unique setting for 15 classical singers to delve deeply into the vast repertoire of art song for three weeks. Fellows are paired with staff collaborative pianists to work with a faculty of distinguished musicians, pedagogues, and scholars on varied aspects of vocal performance, including style, technique, language, diction, dramaturgy, performance, and career preparation.

In addition to a series of public masterclasses that focus on growing the fellows’ experience and interpretations of specific repertoire, the musicians participate in several afternoon and evening concerts presented during the summer, some with specially curated themes and others featuring repertoire selected by the performers.

This program is curated by Cori Ellison, a leading creative figure in opera who has been the dramaturg—the musical conscience connecting composer, artist, and audience—at Santa Fe Opera, the Glyndebourne Festival, and New York City Opera. She is also a founding faculty member of American Lyric Theater’s Composer Librettist Development Program and similarly leads the Opera Lab at The Juilliard School. Not only a sought-after collaborator in new opera commissions, Ellison creates supertitles for opera companies across the English-speaking world and helped launch MetTitles, a simultaneous translation system.
