Artists-in-Residence Program

The Dayton Opera Artists-in-Residence Program was established in 1987 to serve as a professional training program for young singers as a bridge to move from the university/conservatory education experience into the arena of a professional opera company. Four artists are selected each year from national auditions and reside in Dayton for 3 months.

In addition to performing in both major and supporting roles with the Dayton Opera, beginning in January these four talented young artists work together over the course of a few months to perform education and outreach programs in our community, helping contribute to the future health of this wonderful art form in our area.
