About the event.
The goal of our Young Artist Program is to nurture the most talented emerging artists in our community through training and performance opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Four Young Artists are be carefully selected to participate in this program by Artistic Director David Holloway each year.
El Paso Opera provides various coachings and trainings by industry professionals at no cost to the Young Artists. The selected Young Artists present engaging programs to schools, hospitals, retirement homes, and other venues throughout the community. The Young Artists are compensated for each community performance and also have guaranteed chorus roles in El Paso Opera major productions, for which they will be additionally compensated.
Auditions for our Young Artist Program are held annually in the late summer. Participants in this program are offered the position for a period of one year (September - August) with possible renewal for up to three years.
