The Singer's Audition Handbook

Are you beginning to plan your audition season? Check out this blog post by Claudia Friedlander for advice and resources to help you identify your goals and map out your audition season well in advance.

Throughout the summer and early fall, The Singer’s Audition Handbook will help you identify, prepare, and successfully audition for the educational and performance opportunities that are right for you.

Music from the Mountains

Hannah Schneider launched Music from the Mountains—a humanitarian project to help struggling musicians in the mountainous North Caucasus, Russia—to show that music still unites us all, even across languages, cultures, and politics. Hannah has traveled to the North Caucasus, a region fraught with poverty and religious and ethnic strife, to scout and record an album of young musicians to help them develop their talent and become involved in Musical Exchange.


Check out our newest featured musicians: Darina, Dzhanetta, and Bela!
