Artists in Training
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the 2020 Merola summer program has been canceled. Merola plans to open for a new summer festival June 2021. The Program offers a unique combination of training and performance opportunities for young professional singers, coaches, and stage directors. The summer includes fully staged operas with orchestra, a scenes concert, and the Merola Grand Finale concert, which concludes the summer. These experiences in front of a live audience put into practice the depth and richness of the lessons learned over the program. Merola participants receive matchless advanced training in musical style and interpretation, role preparation, movement and acting, accompaniment and conducting, languages and diction, breath work, professional development. The Adler Fellowship Program is a residency offered to select singers and coaches who have completed the Merola Opera Program.
