At Longy, we prepare students to become exceptional musicians who can engage new audiences; teach anyone, anywhere; and use artistry to change lives in communities around the world. By weaving artistry and service together as an integral part of the curriculum, Longy is shaping a new future for classical music. Join us and become the musician the world needs you to be.
Guided by an exceptional faculty, students in Longy’s Vocal Studies Department learn and perform across multiple styles and genres – from fully-staged operas, staged cycles of art songs, and newly composed works, to cantata, oratorio, and contemporary improvisation. With opportunities to work with distinguished local organizations such as Boston Opera Collaborative, Emmanuel Music and Boston Camerata, among others, Longy singers graduate as professionals.
Studio lessons, acting, movement, and repertoire classes stand side-by-side with Longy’s innovative Catalyst Curriculum – all designed to position singers for a life-long career, in which they may join start-up opera companies, work with innovative and cutting-edge directors, conceive their own artistic presentations in alternative settings, or anything else they set their minds to do.
