Applications are open for Berkshire Choral International’s competitive Apprentice Program. The program includes free tuition, music and coaching, housing and meals, and a reimbursed travel stipend.
Each week-long program (Barcelona, Sonoma, or Saratoga Springs in 2022) is an intensive choral experience where apprentices study and rehearse major choral-orchestral works with eminent conductors and soloists. This program is designed for career-track singers, choral conductors, and accompanists enrolled in undergraduate or master’s degree level programs. Doctoral students or very recently graduated students may also be considered. Applicants can request to attend one or two weeks in 2022.
BCI is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive experience for choral singers. Black, Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ identified students are strongly encouraged to apply. Application requirements are at: https://www.berkshirechoral.org/apply/apprentice-application. Apply by Feb. 15, 2022.
