Vocal Arts Institute

The Pre-College Vocal Institute at the AMF is a comprehensive summer music experience for young singers under 18.

Rooted in AMF’s core values of originality, independence, and innovation, the program empowers young singers with opportunities to explore and enhance their vocal technique and artistry and to prepare for college-level training in vocal arts.

The program takes place during session 2. During the three-week session, students will work closely with expert vocal arts faculty to enhance their musical, creative, and collaborative skills through ensemble rehearsals, lyric theater workshops, vocal arts seminars, lessons, coachings, and masterclasses. The program will culminate in live performances of a diverse repertoire, including songs, choruses, and musical theater, providing students with practical experience in vocal technique, diction, interpretation, acting, and stage presence.

The Pre-College Vocal Institute is an excellent opportunity for those considering conservatory auditions. Participants will have access to high-definition recordings of their performances at the end of the festival season.
