The Program

Designed for singers on the cusp of professional careers, the Emerging Artist Program provides opportunities for education and career advancement within the context of Bach Akademie’s annual Charlotte Bach Festival. Emerging Artists rehearse and perform two cantatas and the Mass in b minor alongside their professional colleagues, in addition to individual coachings and masterclasses with distinguished faculty and soloists. Specific sessions unique to the Emerging Artist program include "Meet & Greet" luncheons covering such topics as style interpretation, entrepreneurship, vocal function & health, voice and yoga.

Emerging Artists are underwritten by the generous contribution of Bach Akademie Charlotte sponsors. Housing, transportation, and a per diem are included in the Emerging Artist contract.

Bach Akademie Charlotte is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
