A limited number of accomplished singers and accompanists will be accepted for advanced study in the summer of 2012. Young professionals and advanced students are invited to apply for admission as performing participants in the course. While auditor status is available to anyone 18 years old or older, performers must possess technical proficiency and interpretative sensibility promising a successful professional career, and, as a rule, performing singers should be younger than 35. Candidates for performing status are requested to accompany their applications with a recent photograph and with documents demonstrating the advanced level of their accomplishments, such as degrees earned, awards and prizes, newspaper criticism, letters of recommendation by established teachers, and, in every case, a recording of four Schubert and two Wolf Lieder.
for applications is March 15, 2012.
