Hi Claudia. Great insights. I just joined the Musical Exchange yesterday on the suggestion of my manager and can see this site is a real blessing. I have many videos on YouTube. About 28 of them right now at Kinnor Classics Intl.. And I just did a two hour solo concert last Sunday March 1st. It was video recorded as well and should be completed and ready to upload in about 2 weeks. I'm hoping to use some of my many videos for auditions and performance opportunities with U.S. orchestras and symphonies. I would really love some professional feedback on them. I'm just starting out, but my manager is confident we're on the right track. He created Kinnor Classics.com as a new business start up last June just to promote me. We both are on a big learning curve. He also helped me set up my profile here and we both want to contribute to this site as much as we can. Thank you again for such a fabulous website. Looking forward to your valuable feedback.

Hello Everyone! Soooo at the end of last year I was treating The Singer's Audition Handbook like a bible (thank you Claudia)and I was accepted into my first ever Summer School (I'm going to Munich,Germany)!! I'm in the process of organising a fundraising concert but I'm struggling with a title for the concert. It would be amazing if you guys could help me and suggest some ideas.

Hi @Naman - we've actually posted lots of voice video tutorials to this group over the past couple of years! You'll find them in the Discussions, and you can view a complete list on my videos page. Enjoy, and feel free to be in touch with any questions.

There is also a Facebook group that is a terrific source for referrals like this. If you're on Facebook, friend me there & I'll add you to the group.

Hey Claudia. No I'm not. I have looked at auditions plus.com and there is a list there but I was hoping for some recommendations in regards to past expirience :) I should probably get a YAPtracker account aswell!
Comment by Claudia Friedlander on October 24, 2014 at 10:58am

Magda, are you on YAPTracker? It's an outstanding database for training programs and performance opportunities (paid subscription site). I do not personally have experience with summer programs in Italy, but that's where I'd look first. 

Comment by Magda Lisek on October 24, 2014 at 9:36am
Hi Everyone! :) I am on a look out for an opera summer school in Italy for end of June-July 2015 and I wold really love it if anyone could recomend a program.
