REPERTOIRE PROGRAM

The voice program offers a custom-made program for advanced voice students, aged 18 years and over and young professionals.

This program covers exhaustive study of the French repertoire and style. While working on an entire role or varied repertoire, the student is called upon to understand the differences and to master the different aspects of the French style. The repertoire could come from XVII to XX century melody, oratorio, opera or opéra-comique. The program ends with a concert to demonstrate the acquired knowledge and skills.
