2013 Young Artists

Every summer a roster singers, directors and coach/accompanists join The Glimmerglass Festival’s acclaimed apprenticeship program. The program provides training and experience for talented artists in the early stages of their professional career.

In 2013, Glimmerglass Young Artists work with Julie and Nathan Gunn, who join the company as Artists in Residence.  The Young Artists will perform in mainstage productions and the Meet Me at the Pavilion series, as well as cover principal roles, perform in concerts with Christine Goerke and Eric Owens, and present a special matinee performance of Camelot on August 23.
