Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre’s Young Artist Program offers education and performance experience to outstanding pre-professional singers, who are provided a performance stipend and home stay. Members of the Young Artist Program take the stage in main stage operas as part of the opera chorus, as well as leads in Young Artist productions. In addition, young artists participate in master classes, mock auditions, stage combat and make up workshops during their time in Cedar Rapids.
Young Artist auditions are held annually every September and October in various locations in the Midwest. Please visit the Opera Website for more information on Young Artist Program auditions.
