STUDENT APPRENTICE PROGRAM


Children and youth between the ages of 7-20 are invited to audition for Opera Naples’ student apprentice program.   This program gives one-on-one training encounters and performance opportunities.    Participants prepare and perform solos and small ensembles but also sing as a youth chorus for various events including ON’s annual gala, and CAPA’s Rising Stars Concert.   Many of the students participate in ON’s Sing for Smiles program which brings youth into area assisted living facilities to share the joy of music with the residents.    There is no cost to participate in the program.   Admission is determined by audition and interview.
