COSI’s Concert Soloist program brings a spotlight to singers who perform in Sulmona’s magnificent courtyards, and its glorious cathedrals. It is an innovative program at two levels i) Student Singers who are discovering the many aspects of singing and performing, and ii) Advanced Singers who are emerging professionals or in-career professional singers. In addition to language classes, voice lessons, and coaching, successful applicants will engage in a program specifically designed for their learning, experiential and performance goals. COSI’s esteemed opera professionals offer intensive feedback and refinement opportunities, as well as role preparation and development. Abundant performance opportunities are available, and can be scheduled as appropriate to the singer and the COSI program.
