Winter Opera St. Louis Audition Boot Camp: Get Artistically Refreshed


Are you feeling a little lost in the sea of arias, audition dresses, and resumes? Have you been singing “Deh vieni, non tardar” so much that it’s losing its novelty and want to freshen it up? Are you in need of guidance from current industry experts who will point you in the right direction, both artistically and professionally? It’s time to get that audition spirit in shape!

Winter Opera St. Louis is hosting its first ever, five-day intensive workshop series this September to help hone your audition skills for the upcoming season! Each day you’ll have a mock audition with an expert panel, one-on-one dramatic and musical coachings, and individual sessions with renowned conductors to help work out those pesky dynamic markings and tricky transitions. You will also have the opportunity to work on resume and headshot upkeep, business and marketing strategies, and learn about audition attire, making sure you make your best impression in future auditions!

Session sizes are purposely kept small, only ten singers per session, to ensure that you get plenty of time to sing and work with the experts. For only $500 for the five-day session it’s a real bang for your buck! You’ll come away armed with a wealth of knowledge and confidence, feeling artistically refreshed and ready to conquer the upcoming audition season!
