Tulane Vocal Arts Festival

Uptown Campus
Dixon Annex Recital Hall and Choral Room
Recital Hall/152, Choral Room/254

Featuring Guest Artist Performers/Clinicians

The Tulane Vocal Arts Festival is open to all student and professional singers and pianists.

Any Adult Singer over 21 year of age may apply for the Festival Singers Concert Saturday, October 26, 2019. There is no age limit for those participating.

Our goal is to encourage the further study and excellence in classical singing, which plays a vital role in the shaping of vocal performers. The festival brings together world-renowned artists/teachers in the field of classical music to present master classes and workshops for students, singers, teachers of voice, voice professionals, and those who simply love the human voice! 

Registration is free and includes two days of professional development, concerts and master classes. Participants will perform in and/or observe master classes and workshops taught by an experienced panel of faculty artists of the highest caliber. Master Classes and guest artist faculty concert performances are open to the public. A final free concert of adult festival singers, open to the public, will be held as a special treat for all involved!
