Miami Choral and Voice Institute

presented by

The Cincinnati Fusion Ensemble

June 25-July 2, 2017 in Coral Gables, Florida

In this intensive eight-day workshop for singers and conductors, Voice Institute Participants receive 2-3 lessons and 2-3 coachings. In addition, master classes will be given by institute voice faculty member, Daniel Weeks, and guest voice clinician, Manny Perez. Participants all perform in a group recital, as well as rehearse daily with the festival chorus, culminating in the final choral concert at the conclusion of the week. Opportunities also include potential choral solo performances in the final concert. Choral Festival Participants work with conductors and clinicians daily throughout the week.  Choral Conducting Interns receive intense mentorship with conducting faculty (individually, and in festival choir rehearsals), with the potential of conducting a selection on the final concert. Don’t miss out on one of the most affordable world-class summer institutes offered anywhere!
