More about  Classic Lyric Arts, from artistic director Glenn Morton:

“Classic Lyric Arts summer training programs in France and Italy share a common conviction that the essence of great singing originates in language, and that language is a reflection of culture and history.

Training with expert coaches and teachers in French and Italian style, while experiencing the place and the people that gave birth to this art form, empowers singers to explore opera and song more deeply, to refine their craft, and to achieve mastery as singers in French and Italian.”
