College singers and instrumentalists, make your plans now to come and study at one of the most spectacular summer locations on the planet... the Little Traverse Bay area of northwestern Michigan. While the rest of the country swelters under record heat, Bay View remains a temperate and refreshingly cool place to spend your summer months honing your craft in one of the most collegial, supportive environments to be found anywhere. This, when combined with an incredible festival season with over 50 public events and invigorating Chautauqua programming options, means you'll be enveloped in world-class repertoire ranging from classical to pops, and from jazz to opera.
The programs we offer in 2014 include:
- Chamber Music (choose to study chamber music for 4 or 8 weeks)
- Bay View Piano Academy (an 8-day experience like no other!)
- SOARS Program (the 2-week Summer Opera, Art Song, & Recording Seminar)
- Opera Mainstage (6 week program featuring a role in Così fan tutte, stage experience, training, and two performances, all in original language and accompanied by chamber orchestra)
Intrigued? Applications for the vocal program have passed, but the instrumental application is here.
