NEW!!! Canto is excited to announce a new location in Italy

May 11-21 2020

Please send all application materials to:



In light of the many questions and uncertainties caused by spread of the coronavirus, Canto Vocal Programs has decided to extend the application deadline for all of our programs until April 1. We hope that the situation will become clearer over the next month regarding safe travel to Europe. Canto will not hold any of our programs if there is any risk to the health and safety of our singers, faculty and partners. We remain optimistic that we will be able to have our summer season without any significant interruption, but will wait to make a final decision once we have more up-to-date information. In the meantime, we encourage singers to apply for Rocca di Cambio, Zagreb and Louisville throughout the month of March.
