Hailing from the United States, Mexico and Hong Kong, seven accomplished singers and one coach/pianist are making the halls of the Doral Opera Center ring with music as they coach and rehearse for their many upcoming responsibilities. Look for them in concerts, art song recitals, and main stage roles. Katrina, left, will be singing in November and December.

The Young Artists of the 2008-2009 Season are hard at work – singing at events, presenting programs in schools, beginning rehearsals for the main stage, and lovingly polishing their concert repertoire for the Art Song Recital Series. Art Song Recitals feature intimate music shared with friends, where it’s possible to see and hear every artistic nuance.

The opening recitals of the season are an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful concert and meet the artists in a reception to follow the performance. Performances will be by Katrina Thurman, soprano, Amanda Crider, mezzo-soprano, with Young Artist Ming Hay Kwong and Pedro Yanez, Principal Coach of the Young Artist Studio, pianists. Come join us and see some of these talented artists and bring friends – these short recitals featuring a wide range of music are a great way to introduce people to classical vocal music! Mark your calendars!
