WORDS FROM ALUMNI
Nicole, emerging artist
"I have greatly appreciated and enjoyed my time performing with this amazing group of people. I adore everyone I have had the honor and pleasure of working with here. The production process was a blast - just as fun as I remember it being years ago, but which it hasn’t been for a long time. The staff are some of the best musicians and performers, but more than that, some of the best teachers I have ever worked with. I learned more about singing, performing, music, and opera in these few short weeks than I have learned in years, and definitely more than any other program."
Sarah, emerging artist
I’ve been to a handful of singer training programs and this one is my favorite. The personalized attention, the amazing faculty, beautiful location, and awesome food made this such a unique experience. Bodrum is beautiful and the unique ancient performing venues were a dream to tour and perform in!
Insha, directing apprentice
This program has been an amazing experience to be part of! The quality of the faculty is unmatched, and I’ve learned so much from them in such a short amount of time. Bodrum is an incredible location, the people are so kind, the food is amazing, and it feels like home!
Morgan, directing apprentice
VAO Bodrum provided me the opportunity to grow, not only as an artist and director, but as a person. The staff and wonderful students made the experience of solo directing much more fun and less stressful.
