The Opera Conductor Training Program was established by Syracuse Opera’s Director of Music Douglas Kinney Frost with Ithaca College faculty Brian DeMaris. It has two components with the first being a series of conducting fellowships spanning the Syracuse Opera season which allows three graduate students to observe the orchestra, chorus, and staging rehearsals from several productions as well as work with Syracuse Opera staff, performing artists, and conductors. Master classes focused on the standard opera repertoire and featuring expert conducting instructors complete the program. This initiative exemplifies Ithaca College’s ongoing quest to provide its students with real-life, hands-on experiences and Syracuse Opera’s commitment to professional opportunities for emerging artists.
Now in its 37th year, Syracuse Opera enriches the lives of the people of upstate New York through locally produced opera, the all-inclusive art form which features the beauty of the human singing voice energized by the spectacle of live theater. Offering three mainstage productions each season and year-round community performances and education programs, Syracuse Opera is a professional company reaching over 60,000 people each year.
