Programs of SongFest
The Professional Program is made up of singers and collaborative pianists on the brink of successful performing careers. Most are in graduate school or are already performing professionally.
Young Artist Program
The Young Artist Program is made up of undergraduate and graduate singers. From Italian diction class to master classes with world-class faculty, these students are offered the chance to focus on the art of song.
Our Intern Program is for singers aged 15-18. These young singers have the opportunity to work with faculty members and at the same time learn from and performing with older colleagues.

The Mentor Program is for professional voice teachers and coaches who wish to expand their knowledge of art song, as well as learning teaching techniques from art song experts. Performing opportunities are limited.
