Young Voices Program
The Young Voices of the Santa Fe Opera program was created in January of 2008 to encourage, nurture and guide high school students exhibiting talent, desire and potential for singing classical music. Program participants receive voice lessons and musical coaching by the Santa Fe Opera’s music staff as well as training in diction, music theory and basic acting. Students also participate in master classes by visiting guest artists, attend cultural events and have multiple opportunities to gain performance experience through studio classes, community engagement activities and public performances.
The program follows the school year (September–May, with an orientation at the Santa Fe Opera in late-August) and culminates with a public recital. Since the inception of the Young Voices, ninety-three students have participated in the program and many are now pursuing further studies in prestigious music programs. Participation in this program is free of charge.
