Are you looking to polish your 5 arias for your upcoming auditions this fall? Come to Winter Opera St. Louis in September and join one of our intensive five day audition boot camps where you will bring your arias to the next level. Each day you will have a mock audition for a panel of professionals, dramatic coaching with Dean Anthony, opera coaching and work with a conductor. We will also address the business of singing and tweak your resume, audition attire and headshots. Each session will only have 10 artists which will assure the personal attention you deserve in order to achieve your singing and professional goals.

You will be singing at least two hours a day and work on the important aspects of auditioning. Gain the confidence you need to succeed!
