Charlotte Hoather, Soprano

For myself, the most interesting piece of knowledge that I have gained is that your own artistic individuality is key to your performance, allowing you to enjoy being the person you are on and offstage. Like a wonderful piece of art some people will love you and others, whose tastes differ may not. But I know that if I sing with all my heart, demonstrating who I am as a performer with my own bells and whistles, then I know that I can be honest with the story and let my body sing from my soul.

Katie Castro, Soprano

Overall I had a great experience and I would happily do it again. I learned a lot, but I also feel like I have a clear idea of what I need to work on when I get back home!

Jessica Harris, Soprano

Thank you! I loved the whole experience. Suggested improvements were literally tiny things that I had to think really hard to even come up with, if the program stays exactly as is it is fabulous. Everyone working there is so lovely & helpful. I’ve come away absolutely inspired. Thank you!

Rozanna Madylus, Mezzo-Soprano

I was, however, blown away by the outstanding level of teaching and will be most definitely recommending BOA [SOA’s sister academy] to other young singers.

Carla Cottini, Soprano

It was an amazing real world experience. [The director] treated us probably the same way he treats the singers at the Theatre, asked us to put ourselves completely into new ideas and really made my brain and my instincts work a lot. I would love to work with him again. Definitely.
