Sarasota Youth Opera
Every year SYO offers a three-week summer camp exploring the amazing world of opera. Campers delve into the magic both on the stage and behind the scenes led by professionals from Sarasota Opera. A typical day includes not only singing and acting but also creating fun projects in sets, wigs, make-up, costumes, props, and so much more! No previous experience or auditions required.
Since 1984, Sarasota Youth Opera has given thousands of young people ages 8 and up an opportunity to experience opera firsthand through participation in after-school choruses, Sarasota Opera main stage productions, summer camps, and fully staged Youth Opera productions. As the only program in the United States committed to presenting annual full-scale opera productions for young voices, accepting all who wish to participate regardless of skill level or ability to pay, Sarasota Youth Opera is a national model for opera education..
