Summer Voice

The Summer Voice program is an innovative program for both current pre-college and college-level students seeking to refine audition repertoire through voice lessons, coachings, stage technique classes and performances. 

There are two separate program sessions, each lasting five days.  During the program, students will participate in stage craft classes designed to bring out their most honest, effective and impactful performance of solo repertoire.  Students will also participate in studio classes and masterclasses with members of our distinguished faculty. These classes will focus on freedom and efficiency of technique, expression of intentions, and audience engagement.  In addition to these class sessions, students will receive individual coaching and voice lessons with many of our world class voice faculty. Let DePaul University show you how our world renowned, experienced and generous faculty can launch you toward the next step in your vocal career.  

Two different  sessions: 
Monday, August 2 - Friday, August 6, 2021 (Pre-College Students) 
Monday, August 9 - Friday, August 13, 2021 (College Students)​​
