On Tour to Santa Fe Opera! 

During spring break, many of our string and vocal students had an unforgettable tour experience to Santa Fe Opera, marking our ongoing partnership since 2020!

From behind the scenes to center stage, our students delved into a world of artistic wonder and professional growth. They explored all areas of the opera center, from production areas to backstage, gaining invaluable insights into the magic of performance creation.

But that's not all! They had the privilege to learn from the masters themselves, including renowned violinist Arnold Steinhardt of the legendary Guarneri String Quartet, and the wonderful soprano Amy Owens, Director of the Young Voices of Santa Fe Opera, who led captivating masterclasses, igniting sparks of inspiration in every note.

The crescendo of their journey? A final concert uniting FIU and Santa Fe Opera's Young Voices Program at St. Francis Auditorium, showcasing music diversity and cultural exchange to the local community.

We are so thankful to our gracious hosts at the Santa Fe Opera for this extraordinary opportunity! We are also very grateful to those who have continued to support our students over the years so they can achieve their dreams of becoming professional musicians in this ever-changing industry.
