Two-week Intensive Opera Workshop
Vincent Dion Stringer, Artistic Director


The Baltiomre Summer Opera Workshop (BSOW) presents a comprehensive performance calendar includes: a concert in a dinner theater setting, a traditional recital, an evening of one-act operas and a concert with orchestral accompaniment.  The BSOW's training schedule is comprised of acting classes, yoga and conditioning classes, and one-on-one coaching with members of the of North Carolina/Chapel Hill vocal music faculty and of the Morgan State University and University music faculty--the same faculty who coach the members of the acclaimed Morgan State University Choir.  Guest lecturers/instructors will also be a part of the BSOW team.  In addition to the intensive classroom training, the schedule includes six master classes (which are also open to the public).  The master classes will be taught by professional operatic performers.
