Young Artist Program

Providing Connecticut based singers a bridge between the academic and professional worlds, CLO’s Young Artist Program was created to give talented up-and-coming performers the chance to participate in mainstage productions in supporting or covering roles, as well as being showcased in their own production, making their training and involvement an integral part of the OPERAtunities program itself.
