Nashville Opera Fellows Program

The Nashville Opera Association and MTSU have partnered to offer graduate students at MTSU in the Voice Performance area the opportunity to participate in a program called the Nashville Opera Fellows Program. This program provides graduate students who successfully audition for the opera company the chance to be affiliated contractually with Nashville Opera for up to two years. Graduate students who are selected are given the opportunity to perform in mainstage productions in the chorus, should they choose to do so. They perform with the Educational Outreach Program under the direction of Nashville Opera's Educational Outreach Director, Kelly Claus. Fellows are also asked to understudy participants in Nashville Opera's Young Artists Program and be available to perform during this two month touring program should they be needed. Additionally, Fellows are invited to take part in all masterclasses with guest artists and conductors. All of the above activities are financially compensated by the Nashville Opera Association. For more information on this program and the graduate voice performance degree at MTSU, contact Dr. Christine Isley-Farmer at .
