Orvis Young Voices Studio Applications Due May 15
The May 15 application deadline for the Mae Z. Orvis Young Voices Studio is fast approaching! For singers grades 9 – 12:
The Orvis Opera Studio, in essence, allowed me a huge leg up as I finished college and began to move into the ever growing pool of young artists searching for the direction in which to take the next step in their budding careers. I gained so much insight into an operatic career, as well as honing the many tools I would later use to hitting the ground running as a full-fledged artist. I don’t know that I would be as successful as I am today if not for all that the Orvis Opera Studio gave me all those years ago.” – Baritone Quinn Kelsey
