How tough is it to pass an opera studio audition? Here’s how
March 8, 2016 by norman lebrecht
Houston Grand Opera (HGO) has chosen three new singers and one pianist/coach for the 2016–17 HGO Studio.
They are Yelena Dyachek, soprano (pictured); Zoie Reams, mezzo-soprano; Sol Jin, baritone, and Peter Walsh, pianist/coach.
Well done, them.
The trainees were drawn from an international mailbag of 475 applications. Of these, some 275 were heard in auditions in Houston, New York, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles.
Just four got through.
A success chance of below one percent.
