Opera Columbus and Capital University have partnered together to launch the OCCU Resident Artist Program.
During the residency, accepted artists will join Opera Columbus to cover roles in mainstage productions, perform in educational tours, and be part of community engagement opportunities. They will also serve as voice teachers, perform recitals, and expand their repertoire at Capital University.
Selected artists will be able to experience an ample amount of opportunities throughout this program. With Opera Columbus, artists will perform for more than 13,000 students throughout Central Ohio as part of its “Opera Goes to School” program and perform and cover mainstage roles. In addition to serving as voice teachers at Capital University, artists will stand as mentors to the undergraduate students in the music program and perform a recital and scenes from opera/musical theatre as needed to expand repertoire and student mentorship.
