Voice and Opera

OperaMcMurry’s Opera Workshop was founded in 2003 to promote a greater appreciation of and facility in opera and music theatre.  Its purpose is to increase performance opportunities for students via full-length chamber operas, opera scenes and student concerts, and to enhance pedagogy and performing acumen through the soloistic medium.  Students in the music and theater departments participate in a variety of activities, workshops and rehearsals to hone their vocal and acting skills which culminate in an opera or scenes concert each spring.  Students gain additional experience in the technical aspects associated with a theater production, and graduate from McMurry’s Music Department well-equipped to audition for graduate voice programs or participate in community theater.
