The SIVA program offers two programs in order to give every student at different ages the opportunity to receive intensive training and performing opportunities in our main stage productions.
Our Apprentice Program is for advanced vocal students (minimum age 13) wishing to receive continued vocal training and education for auditions, shows, and eventual placement in a conservatory or musical theatre program. Leading professionals and music educators provide daily lessons and coaching, as well as classes in acting, movement, and musicianship skills. In an intensive, yet supportive, environment, students will experience life in a musical school program, further enhancing their vocal studies. These students will have the opportunity to be in a main production.
Our Young Artist Program is for the pre-professional vocal student who has a strong interest in pursing a professional career as a singing actor. Our Young Artists will work audition repertoire and select pieces from the summer show with esteemed vocal teachers, conductors, and coaches. Singers will perform in masterclasses and our mainstage production, while fine tuning details of vocal technique, interpretation, and stage presence.
Student placement in our programs is based on vocal education, quality and control of your instrument, and resume.
Audition Requirements (for both programs)
Two 16-32 bar cuts in the style of the piece * must be memorized
One contemporary monologue *must be memorized and one minute in length
All auditions will be evaluated by video submission. You may either upload video to your email submission, or provide a YouTube link.
