The application deadline is June 1, 2014.

The repertoire will be limited to opera arias and ensembles.

NAOS will accept 13 active participants and up to 8 passive participants.
The workshop will cost €480 for active and €120 for passive participants.

Each active participant will have 5 sessions of 45 minutes in the form of  Master Classes, where they will work more on vocal, musical and interpretive aspects of their
performance, as well as some stage instruction and limited audition training. We also offer make-up instruction. Every singer will receive feedback from the dress rehearsal. Ensemble sessions are optional and will also be available, time permitting. This will be decided individually with each singer after arrival. All sessions take place on stage with piano accompaniment. Pianist Yannis Tsanakaliotis will accompany the Master Class.

We also offer optional role-study coachings. This costs an additional €165. Only 9 singers will be accepted for this program. Each singer who is accepted for these coachings will receive five one hour sessions of coaching with a pianist for a complete role. If the roles are smaller, it is possible to use this time for studying more than one role. Ideally, singers sharing operas will be able to schedule coachings with their ensemble colleagues.

We have an island excursion every year. This is not a requirement, but adds to making your experience in Chios, Greece even more memorable!

Interested singers should include a CV and letter of recommendation from a professional musician as well as a recording of 2 opera arias (recorded no earlier than January 2014) with their email application. Also, a non-refundable €50 application fee should be transferred by June 1, 2014. Our secretary will send the bank information when sending the application form upon your request.

Participants are required to arrange their own travel and lodging. However, NAOS will gladly make suggestions to those who ask, especially concerning local hotels.
