Recording Days

Recording Days welcome singers and other performing artists to create high-quality video and audio recordings at subsidized rates.

Artists work with professional sound engineers in the acoustically excellent Marc A. Scorca Hall of the National Opera Center.

Recording Days are supported by the Howard Gilman Foundation.

Whatever your voice type or instrument, take advantage of subsidized rates and professional sound engineers to record your next demo, audition reel, or musical project.
