Must Have Mozart Master Class Series
Must Have Mozart Master Class Series

All classical singers study Mozart to develop line, style and elegance of phrasing. The inclusion of a Mozart aria is required in every singer's audition package and the mastery of recitatives and arias is imperative. This Master Class Series gives students the tools they need to excel in both the style and effective delivery of works by this genius in the Classical canon. Powerful expression in a specific musical style as well as engaging verbal introductions to the repertoire is a winning combination for any artist.

College Prep Series
College Audition Preparation Master Class Series
and Community Concerts


This series increases students' awareness of the skills necessary to excel as classical performers in our culture. Master Classes will be presented in a group format so all can benefit from New Triad's unique approach to audition preparation. As part of the program, all students will have the opportunity to compete in a "high stakes" audition environment allowing them to "rehearse" their college audition in real competitive circumstances. The competition winners, singers most likely to succeed as classical musicians, will benefit from individual coaching of interdisciplinary presentation training. In addition, competition winners will have performing opportunities in outreach settings, for an audience that may not have the opportunity to hear classical music performed by aspiring professionals.
