Los Angeles

Auditions held on the campus of the University of Southern California in the lovely Schoenberg Institute Recital Hall. Wish we had more time here. The Metropolitan Opera National Council is holding its Western Regional Finals across campus, and several of today’s singers were auditioning in both places.
Also finished our apprentice coach and apprentice director interviews today. Haven’t said much about this aspect of our process, but I don’t want to neglect it. We search for an opera coach and an aspiring opera director to function as junior members of our staff for the summer. (“Coach” is the term for the pianist who plays rehearsals and prepares the singers for roles; both Thomas and I are coaches.) Career-entry opportunities for these professionals are even rarer than opportunities for singers, and we’re happy to be able to participate in the training of these people who are so vital to the future of our business.
