Atlanta Opera's HS Opera Institute Students to Perform in Spring Concert 6/5

On Sunday, June 5 at 4pm at the Morningside Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, graduates from The Atlanta Opera's High School Opera Institute will be showcasing their work in a performance featuring arias and small ensemble pieces from some of opera's greatest works. This concert is free and open to the public.

The High School Opera Institute (HSOI) is a training program for students, grades 10-12, who are interested in pursuing a career in music. Participants in this eight-month program attend monthly workshops and vocal coachings on topics that include: preparing and auditioning for a role; selecting a music school; characterization; diction; and vocal technique. These workshops are taught by leading professionals in the opera field: Atlanta Opera Chorus Master Walter Huff, Stephanie Adrian, Laura English-Robinson, Michael Spassov, and Beverly Blouin. Students are required to attend performances and rehearsals of Atlanta Opera mainstage productions. The High School Opera Institute is the only preparatory program of its kind offered by an opera company in the nation.

This year, 11 students were selected to participate after a strenuous audition process. Their names and high schools are listed below:
