CoOPERAtive Program Success Stories
"I could not have made it to the finals without your help!"
Elizabeth Jarrett, first place winner in the Southwest Regional Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions
“I sang the same arias at my Sarasota audition that I sang for my graduate school auditions the previous year. I was not accepted to any of the programs I applied to that year. The difference this year, however, is the refinement, polish, and ownership I have concerning my arias. I gained this at the CoOPERAtive program during three weeks of intense coaching and scrutiny from some of the most respected teachers, conductors and coaches in the business.”
Justin Lamont Hopkins, bass-baritone recently accepted into the Sarasota Young Artist Program.
“The CoOPERAtive experience has been invaluable to me and I have the chance to utilize all of the technical and artistic concepts I learned during my time there.”
Jennifer Johnson, mezzo-soprano recently accepted into the Gerdine Young Artist Program at Opera Theater of St. Louis
“I have never spent a more productive three weeks in my life than I have at CoOPERAtive. Through multiple daily one-on-one coachings with some of the most esteemed and knowledgeable musicians in the opera community, I have gained a year’s worth of knowledge in three weeks time. I would highly recommend this program to any young singer who is serious about perfecting the difficult craft that is opera."
