High School Program

The International Lyric Academy is celebrating 30 years of success by partnering again with Opera Carolina. In 2024, the ILA will offer two intensive programs, one in Italy, Vicenza and  one in Charlotte, NC. 

Students will be offered a unique life experience and the possibility to perform in both countries, including special bundled discounts and scholarships.

This is a wonderful program for young and emerging artists. Singers work with Maestro del Coro to prepare ensemble parts in The Magic Flute. In addition to the full performances, stagings, rehearsals, costuming, and production craft are all part of the ILA experience. Singers participate in weekly vocal lesson, Italian language class as well as have multiple opportunities to participate in master classes. Solo performance opportunities are available at the weekly Florilegium or Grand Gala Concerts. The first payment due is when you are accepted and the second payment due May 15, 2024.
