2014 Masterclasses

Join us to watch some of our expert instructors and special guests as they work with the talented young participants with the Halifax Summer Opera Festival. Not only do you get to hear a mini recital, but it can be fascinating to watch these professionals help release singers from a variety of challenges, both vocal and dramatic.

Each masterclass lasts two hours and presents five or six singers.

Admission is $15 for each masterclass, available in advance or at the door. HSOF members get in for free — membership is available at the door, too 🙂
