PAST STUDENT REVIEWS
“The Art Song Festival was a fantastic experience! I'm not even a voice major (I'm a piano major), but I benefited greatly from this opportunity to sing with singers of such high calibre and talent.” Angie
“Art Song Festival was a blast! As a vocal performance major, I always want more stage time, and the Festival provided me with opportunities for solo performance. Any aspiring classical singers NEED to make Art Song Festival a part of their summer. Prepare to be challenged and to have fun!” Sarah
“The Art Song Festival was by far the best experience I have ever had musically. It gave me time to focus on my voice and how to be a complete musician. I would recommend this festival to anyone who is serious about singing.” Stephanie
