After careful consideration for the health and well-being of our singers and faculty, we have made the decision to transition our summer programs to an online learning format. Please review the information about our online programs on the Canto Online page.
"Canto" is a group of professionals from the Metropolitan Opera and other important opera houses who have come together to provide young singers with a different kind of vocal program. The members of our group are long-time colleagues and performers as well as gifted teachers and coaches.
Our many years of experience working with singers in many vocal programs has led us to the conviction that a small faculty focusing on the key areas of musical style and expression, languages, dramatic interpretation and vocal technique leads to sustainable improvement.
Our international programs offer a wide range of intensive studies in style and interpretation, languages and diction, movement and acting, vocal technique, role preparation and advice on career development.
Our programs emphasize intensive study as the foundation for strong performances. We strongly believe that the skills necessary to be performers start in the studio but finish on the stage. We offer small classes in style and master classes to learn and perform in a safe environment, and a public concert to complete the experience.
Canto seeks singers that we believe will benefit from consistent information provided by teachers and coaches who demand the highest professional standards. Our ultimate goal is to help the singers of Canto become successful performing artists.
