“Two years ago, when I began participating in the Florentine Opera Young Singing Actor Intensive, I had absolutely no idea of what I wanted to achieve as a vocal artist. Now, reflecting on my last two summers learning from the Florentine Opera staff, I have grown significantly in my stage presence, attention to detail within my music, and understanding of the art. Perhaps the most important information I have learned, though, is that opera has boundless opportunities. I cannot express my gratitude toward this unique program enough.”

“The multiple ways that the YSAI has impacted my career as a singer and actor are immense. No where else have I seen such a wonderful and dedicated cast of men and women hoping to further young peoples careers in the arts. The program definitely taught me a multitude of amazing ways to utilize my voice. This program propelled me into wanting to continue my life as a singer.”
