The Guildhall Summer School is offering vocal courses for classical singers ages 16-21 this summer.

The program is a one-week-long, in-person course, with housing provided. The sessions will last from July 18 until July 22.

Led by Marilyn Rees and Theresa Goble, students will receive one-on-one training preparing them for conservatory study. Students will focus on breathing and body awareness, take drama workshops, and dive into text study. There will be masterclasses for both English and Italian repertoire. The program will conclude with an informal performance.

To participate, singers must submit a recording of two pieces, one in English, and one in Italian, as well as one piece of prose. The deadline for applications is at 9 am on Monday 20 June 2022.
