Ensemble Program & Recitals
The International Lyric Academy is celebrating 29 years of success by partnering with Opera Carolina. In 2023, the ILA will offer an intensive 4-week Ensemble program that will start in Charlotte, NC on June 26 and continue in Vicenza, Italy for the last two weeks. Students will be offered a unique life experience and the possibility to perform in both countries.
This is a wonderful program for young and emerging artists. Singers work with Maestro del Coro to prepare ensemble parts in Le Nozze di Figaro and Les Contes d’Hoffmann. In addition to the full performances, stagings, rehearsals, costuming, and production craft are all part of the ILA experience. Singers participate in weekly vocal lesson, Italian language class as well as have multiple opportunities to participate in master classes. Solo performance opportunities are available at the weekly Florilegium or Grand Gala Concerts. The first payment due is when you are accepted and the second payment due May 15, 2023.
