The AMF Vocal Institute nurtures gifted young singers by providing them with unparalleled experiences to grow as performers and prepare for professional careers in vocal arts.
Designed as a six-week intensive program, singers focus on developing core skills, including vocal technique, diction, interpretation, acting, and stage movement. Students may also choose to participate for partial 2-week and 4-week sessions.
AMF provides singers with opportunities to participate in performance seminars, aria/art song recitals, opera, and musical theater performances, as well as choir, chamber music, and modern music performances scheduled throughout the festival season. Full-session students also have the opportunity to create a digital audition package.
Since its inception, AMF has served as a training ground for exceptional young artists who have premiered new works at the festival and gone on to study and perform at leading conservatories and young artist programs as well as opera houses and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
