Maryland Opera camp
July 10-23, 2023
The Maryland Opera Summer Camp, in its second decade of identifying and nurturing young singers with an interest in voice and opera, will continue in 2023 with in-person sessions held at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Baltimore City. The camp is offered completely free of charge through the generosity of donors who wish to encourage young vocal talent.
All sessions will be held from 9am to 4pm Monday through Friday. Each camper will receive instruction in voice, drama, and opera/voice coaching in addition to master classes and sessions in dance, movement, and yoga. The camp will also feature "Create & Produce" in which campers will learn how an opera comes to life while creating their own compositions.
The camp will culminate with a performance as part of one of Maryland Opera's outdoor Arias Alfresco concerts.
Additionally, selected campers will be given an opportunity to sing at one of the Maryland Opera outdoor performances scheduled throughout the summer and fall at various locales throughout the state.
The Opera Camp is completely free of charge and open to Maryland High Schoolers in grades 9-12, including those seniors recently graduated. Potential campers will need to complete the application below and submit a video recording of their singing. Applications must be submitted by June 10, 2023.
