Voice and Opera


OperaMcMurry offers both an Opera Workshop and a Musical Theater Workshop 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 soloistic means.  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.

For more information or to audition for the Opera Workshop class, contact Dr. Patricia Vigil at 325.793.4860 or vigil.patricia@mcm.edu .
