The Hawaii Performing Arts Festival
course in Hawaii which specialises in the art of Bel Canto. The HPAF is an intensive study/performance program on Hawaii’s inspirational Big Island. All students perform in at least two public performances, and participate in one of two intensive study programs offered in preparation for their staged opera productions. All students receive private voice lessons and private coaching during the festival, as well as instruction in acting, diction, audition repertoire selection and presentation. The Hawaii Performing Arts Festival is a one-of-a-kind musical experience that harnesses the beauty and inspiration of its surroundings in combination with a nurturing and expert faculty, bringing young singers to the next level in their performance preparations. Thank you HPAF for this invaluable Bel Canto opportunity.
