The Changing Audition Landscape

OPERA America, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and the National Opera Association invite artists, arts administrators, voice teachers, and collaborative pianists/coaches to view “The Changing Audition Landscape." Discussion topics include the evolving repertoire for auditions, barriers that singers of color must navigate to participate in the opera industry, the best “next steps” when making the jump from academia to the professional field, and how to establish boundaries when giving and receiving feedback.
