Joyce DiDonato is set to lead a series of public master classes at Carnegie Hall on Oct. 22-24, 2023.

This year’s selected performers include soprano Jazmine Saunders, mezzo-soprano Karen Mathilde Heier Hovd, countertenor Agustín Pennino, and tenor Travon D. Walker. They will be accompanied by pianists Joel Harder and Justina Lee, who will also provide the artists with support and coaching throughout the week.

The master classes will be open to the public, but will also be live streamed on Carnegie Hall’s official website and via Audiences will then get a chance to revisit the videos for one year on those streaming platforms.

DiDonato is currently in the midst of a run of performances of “Dead Man Walking” at the Metropolitan Opera.
