The Institute for Young Dramatic Voices (IYDV) and the American Wagner Project held their gala Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at 6 PM in the Nightingale Concert Hall at the University of Nevada, Reno, and what a gala it indeed was. It was the performance that capped 3 weeks of intensive vocal training in operatic voice technique. It was performed by 29 beautiful young rising opera stars to show off what they have learned. It was their chance to strut their stuff.
Dolora Zajick and her Institute for Young Dramatic Voices (IYDV) will be gracing Artown with voices that make you hear the angels sing from July 13th through July 31st. Born of a desire to train young dramatic singers and help them reach the world stage, the Institute is the brainchild of Dolora Zajick, Rosemary Mathews, and Sarah Agler. It is an innovative 3-week intensive summer program of study for singers with large or unusual voices ages 15–36 at varying levels of vocal development.
