Sarah & Ernest Butler Masterclass Series

Celebrate the wisdom passed from one singer to another: attend The Sarah & Ernest Butler Masterclass Series!

Masterclasses allow emerging artists to work closely with internationally recognized performers.

While participation is limited to selected university students and Austin Opera chorus members, the general public is invited to attend and see a Master of the voice work with singers, touching on subjects of musicality, the mechanics of singing, and polishing an aria performance for the stage.

The Masterclass takes place in the Austin Opera Rehearsal Hall, located within our offices at 3009 Industrial Terrace, Suite 100, Austin, TX 78758. Masks are recommended but not required.

This event is free. Please RSVP for each individual event so we know to expect you!
