Institute for Young Dramatic Voices
 
Masterclass with Dolora Zajick

Saturday, July 11, 2015
2:00 PM
Nightingale Concert Hall

IYDV founder and acclaimed mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick offers the public a glimpse into the inner workings of the Institute through a masterclass with select students.

About the Institute

Born of a desire to train young dramatic singers and help them reach the world stage, the Institute is the brainchild of Dolora Zajick, Rosemary Mathews, and Sarah Agler. It is an innovative 3-week intensive summer program of study for singers with large or unusual voices ages 15–36 at varying levels of vocal development.

Students study one-on-one with leading coaches and voice teachers who understand the nature of an adolescent voice unfolding in a growing body. The Institute’s carefully selected experts from across the industry work in close collaboration not only with the students, but with each other, to provide a solid foundation of skills a professional singer really needs to embark on and survive a successful operatic career.
