Guided Learning Operatic Workship (GLOW)

Nightingale Opera Theatre is thrilled to announce GLOW

Our Guided Learning Operatic Workshop is a unique program for High School students, which offers opportunities for young singers, pianists and composers.

Students selected to participate in our GLOW program will be given the following opportunities:

    • Coachings and classes in classical vocal music and opera.
    • Perform or compose contemporary American opera in English.
    • Meet and learn from composer Jake Heggie! You can check him out at His opera Dead Man Walking will be performed at the Metropolitan Opera during the upcoming season!
    • Attend or perform in masterclasses and lectures taught by faculty from leading Conservatories and Universities in the U.S.
    • Perform in the chorus or work behind the scenes of the opera If I Were You, composed by Jake Heggie. The opera debuted last summer with the Merola Program through San Francisco Opera and we perform it next! (That’s kind of a big deal!)
    • You will also learn from observing the work of top-notch Young Artists who are completing or have completed college degrees in music.
