Wheelock Family Theatre and Boston Lyric Opera Present:



One and Two-day workshops for youth ages 11 – 15 / 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily

THE ULTIMATE CROSSOVER: Finding Your Way in Opera, Musical Theatre, and Beyond


May 16 – 17, 2015. Tuition: $200; some scholarships available.

For students interested in maximizing their potential as a performer, this workshop shares the secrets of putting together a successful crossover audition book by exploring how singers can switch seamlessly from one style of music to another. Students will develop essential collaboration skills as they work closely with a pianist/coach on elements of style, diction, and musicality to create interpretations that are uniquely suited to their own skills and strengths. By encouraging the development of a healthy vocal technique and fundamental skills, this session will help students become well-rounded singers who can wow a crowd across several musical genres and styles.

Thank you so much, for yet another wonderful performance. And also for so much more than that. It's hard to express from a parent's perspective how much my son has grown these last few years. His life in the theatre - particularly, somehow, these two musical weeks you put on every summer - have given him strength and purpose and poise. We are so very grateful.
