Congratulations to all who auditioned for Opera Up Close in the fall and the spring main stage work--you all did your jobs, and that made OUR job very hard! Get ready for Carlisle Floyd's Slow Dusk and Mozart's Impresario in November and, in April, Benjamin Britten's delightful comedy Albert Herring. Check back often for news and updates!
It's going to be a great weekend of opera in Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre!
Rehearsals are going well. Don't miss this great production with guest director Alan Hicks!
We are VERY excited for next Wednesday!! Some very fortunate singers will have a chance to sing for and learn from one of the best!
Proud of former vocal performance major Amanda Powell! She is doing wonderful things. We are so happy to recognize her in this way.
Last night, voice performance majors took their talents into the community by offering a Valentine's Day program to a very appreciative audience at Westminster-Canterbury Retirement Residence here in Winchester. It was Wunderbar!
So proud of the winners of the 2016 Student Soloist Competition! Graduate soprano Sarah Wofford will sing "Ah fors'è lui...Sempre libera" from La Traviata and undergraduate tenor Ben DaCosta-Kaufman will sing "Questa o quella" from Rigoletto with the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra in April. Undergraduate soprano Victoria Okafor (not pictured here) received an Honorable Mention from the judges for her performance of Handel's "Non disperar" from Giulio Cesare. The Voice Division was very well represented this year!
Thanks to Alisa Daum for taking this great photo of our four Voice Division finalists for the Student Soloist Competition, from left to right: Martina Bingham, Sarah Wofford, Victoria Okafor, and Ben DaCosta-Kaufman. They performed so beautifully!
Tonight, we held the first round of the Student Soloist Competition. These five talented undergraduate singers--Victoria Okafor, Ben DaCosta-Kaufman, Kirstie Mosher, Avery Bargasse, and Javon Charles--made us so proud (and they made it very hard to choose finalists!!).
An exciting day as we welcome singers to our campus to audition! There is snow piled up everywhere, but the sun is out and the sky is bright blue.
Today is the last day of classes for the fall semester, and beautiful singing is pouring out of the practice rooms. Best wishes to our singers on their voice juries this week!
Good news to share about the conservatory! I am grateful for the students, faculty, and staff who make this a great place to learn!
We say bravi tutti to WNO the American Opera Initiative! Last night, a group of singers, accompanied by the intrepid van driver and voice teacher Byron Jones, saw Three 20-minute Operas, performed by the amazing young artists in the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program. An extra treat was getting to chat with composer Christopher Weiss and librettist John de los Santos, whose opera "Service Provider" was one of the works premiered.
Interesting advice from folks who hear a LOT of young singers!
A lucky group of students enjoyed an amazing recital by mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton and pianist Brad Moore--what an evening!
A beautiful message through song for all of us as we begin the day...
On Saturday, October 3rd, Shenandoah welcomed the family of Jackson Sheats, Professor Emeritus of Voice, an accomplished operatic tenor and long-serving voice teacher at the conservatory. Mr. Sheats died last January, so on this day, we celebrated his life and legacy with many voices joined in singing!
There was a LOT of excitement on campus last Friday!!
Conservatory students at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, ready to take in Washington National Opera's production of Carmen.
Freshmen voice majors help celebrate the big announcement: the conservatory is now officially an all-Steinway school! The festivities were made even sweeter with a huge piano-shaped cake from Carlo's Bakery (Cake Boss!) in Hoboken NJ.
Washington National Opera is opening its 15/16 season with Bizet's Carmen. A few voice majors are lucky enough to be attending the performance on Sunday, September 27th as part of the conservatory's Capital Performances series. Those tickets went FAST!
