Opera Santa Barbara will hold additional Youth Opera auditions for its 2016-17 season on September 9 in Ojai. We are looking for singers ages 7 to 18 of exceptional talent, enthusiasm, and musical ability to be a part of our dynamic company. Productions include Bizet’s Carmen in November, Janá?ek’s The Cunning Little Vixen in March, and an original children’s opera production of Hans Krasa’s Brunidbár in May. This is a unique and rewarding opportunity to be part of a professional opera company with other young artists who love to sing, act, and celebrate, in a safe, supportive, and artistically challenging environment.

YO auditionsEvery child should come ready to move, dressed in comfortable clothes that are easy to move and work in. Each child should bring 16 measures of a song they love to sing, in any language, in the key they sing it in. Please bring a copy of the music for the pianist.
