Opportunity, music, artist and audience meld with the beauty and splendor of the Ozark Mountains
This summer at Opera in the Ozarks has been transformative. Performing Blonde and Amy has been amazing, but my favorite part was the amazing people I spent my summer with. I have never encountered such a genuinely kind and supportive group of individuals who continuously lifted each other up. Thank you to all of the faculty that continued to help each of us grow up until the day we left.
So many memories with amazing and beautiful people. You all are my inspiration and will always have a place in my heart. I cherished being your Schaunard, Benoit, Alcindoro, and Professor Bhaer. I would like to say thank you to the Music staff for bringing the best out of the singers and their tireless efforts making the productions phenomenal. I can easily say that my voice has never been better and it is all thanks to them. Until the next time
“My summer at Opera in the Ozarks in 2018 changed everything for me. I knew I loved performing, but it wasn’t until OIO that I realized I had a sense for comic timing. Thanks to OIO, I know with confidence that I have what it takes to build a career on the stage. “
“At Opera in the Ozarks, I was constantly amazed at how the singers were treated with professionalism and respect, and at the supportive and friendly environment in which we were encouraged to step outside our comfort zones and take our craft to the next level. As I look forward to upcoming auditions and my next steps in building my career, I have a newfound confidence in my abilities thanks to the incredible opportunities I had with Opera in the Ozarks! “
”How do I describe the absolutely transformative experience that was Opera in the Ozarks? Suffice it to say, I have been forever changed by the artistry and friendships forged over these past two months. I will cherish these memories for the rest of my life. I found my tribe in the Ozark mountains. The pure joy of creating magic on stage with my new friends truly transcends explanation.”
“I owe so much to everyone at OIO for investing in me and being such a large stepping stone in my musical journey. You do so many excellent things for young singers out there in the Ozarks. Thanks does not adequately express my gratitude.”
