Program Information

?A Non-Profit Organization with a mission to provide world class training to gifted artists and to offer accessible high quality performances to our community. At Chicago Summer Opera, we offer training in role preparation, vocal technique, dramatic preparation, audition technique, and stage movement. Each singer either receives a full role or cover role. Productions are staged and performed with orchestra. Covers will have a cover run staged with piano. This combination of training helps developing singers grow immensely in a short period of time.
