Voice & Opera Certificate Program

The Certificate Program in Voice & Opera combines training in vocal and musical technique with dramaturgical preparation, thus offering lyrical singers an integrated perspective of the art of singing and performance. It is a three-year program divided into 2 levels - Foundation, Advancement, Completion -, in turn divided into 2 semesters each - Fall and Spring -. At the end of each semester and each level, students receive an AEF Diploma.

While not giving up on a solid classical vocal tradition, our students experiment with broader fields of study, from musical theater to lyric repertoire, in order to acquire all the skills necessary to face their future careers.

In addition to lectures in the classroom, held by internationally renown professors and artists, the program offers the opportunity to participate in shows and productions under the guidance of directors, choreographers, producers and professional designers. Within the three-year period, students must participate in a minimum of 3 productions and perform at least one main role in an opera performance.

Admission to the program is not subject to a traditional Audition: applicants will have to send audio materials that will be examined by the teaching staff of AEF. Once the evaluation of these materials has been carried out, only the candidates for whom the commission requests further information will be contacted. For more information on how to submit these materials, send an email to the following address: info@aefirenze.it
