FELLOWSHIPS

The Kenosha Opera Festival fellowship program is a performance-focused learning opportunity designed for the aspiring university level artist seeking real-world experience prior to entering graduate, or the professional, world.

Deadline to Apply: CURRENTLY CLOSED
Start Date: July 6, 2021
End Date: August 8, 2021

Vocal Fellows will develop transferable skills for the unique needs of the opera industry, as well as the general performance industry. They will engage in skill-building sessions relevant to opera performance, experiential learning focused on vocal performance, and networking with industry professionals. Fellows may be considered to serve as study-covers for a professional operatic role or to sing minor roles for the mainstage, full length opera. All fellows will sing in the mainstage chorus, perform named roles in the children’s opera production through our Opera ‘Round K-Town Initiative, grow their knowledge in classes on industry and artistic topics, and engage in private vocal coaching.

This is an unpaid internship, but there is no fee to apply or participate. Funding sources are available for Fellows to receive compensation for their work, and Fellows will receive this information with their acceptance letter.

Applications for the Vocal Fellowship are currently closed. Please come back in early 2022 to apply for next year's openings!

Piano Fellows will develop transferable skills for the unique needs of the opera industry and wider chamber and collaborative arts. They will engage in skill-building sessions relevant to accompanying in the unique context of opera performance, experiential learning centering on rehearsal and performance, and networking with industry professionals. Fellows will learn specific skills pertinent to accompanying opera (reducing scores, maintaining ensemble while sight playing etc.). The Piano Fellow will assist the chorus master and accompanist in chorus and mainstage rehearsals, accompany their vocal fellow colleagues as assigned in the scenes portion of the Student Opera performances, grow their knowledge in classes on industry and artistic topics, and work one-on-one with festival accompanists.
