Young Artists Program Auditions

Applications for the 2017 season are now closed.  Notifications for those who applied will be sent via YAPTracker.

Glimmerglass Festival Young Artists have the opportunity to perform and cover roles in mainstage productions, as well as perform in Second Stage events. Young Artists also have the opportunity to work with 2017 Artist in Residence William Burden.  Artists in Residence have included Deborah Voigt, Eric Owens, Julie and Nathan Gunn, Christine Goerke and Jay Hunter Morris.

Applicants must be United States citizens or have the right to work in the United States. Non-U.S. citizens must send a photocopy of documentary proof of right to work (Note: Canadians may gain the right to work by joining Canadian Federation of Musicians and applying for a P2 Visa. This process is completed after successfully securing a contract with The Glimmerglass Festival and will be done at your own expense).

Young Artists are provided with a weekly stipend, housing and meals. They receive regular musical coaching and have the opportunity to perform in a series of concerts throughout the season. Please note that The Glimmerglass Festival is located in a rural environment and subject to allergens and pollen.
