This Saturday, Don Marrazzo, Glimmerglass Opera’s Director of Casting and Artistic Operations, will be a guest panelist for OPERA America’s “Workshop for Singers: Strategies for Building a Successful Career” at Ithaca College. This workshop will focus on managing the business aspects of a career as a professional artist. The registrants will primarily be comprised of young singers in varying stages of their education, from the pre-college to post-graduate level. Don will be one of 10 guest panelists, joining representatives from Syracuse Opera, ADA Artist Management, Eastman School of Music, Lake George Opera at Saratoga and more. The panelists will participate in moderated discussions and Q&A sessions, and will also provide feedback for several of the registrants chosen to perform for their peers in a mock audition setting.
Allison Hooper, Artistic Operations Manager, is accompanying Don and will report back to the Glimmerglass Opera Blog next week.
