How are you preparing for NUOVA’s program?

Opera NUOVA sounds like a wonderful program that gives singers the opportunity to learn and develop their voices through courses, lessons, and performances. I am thrilled to attend Opera NUOVA this year and get the opportunity to take time out of my everyday life to focus on studying singing. My goal is to learn as much as possible and soak up all the wonderful instruction from the amazing instructors Opera NUOVA provides.
