Camerata Bardi  International Academy

Camerata Bardi International Academy's initiatives for young artists not only involve a high-level of preparation for world stages, but also promotion through productions, live and virtual, with an eye on innovation, filmography and multi media arts. We are working in close partnership with professional Opera Companies and Festivals to ensure that all of our young artists are given performing opportunities at the highest levels.

In Camerata Bardi Vocal Academy and Teatro Grattacielo, we believe that it is the role of Artists to help see the world in new ways. We also believe in the diversity of artistic voices and cultures found in the New York Community and around the world.

The program of Camerata Bardi International Academy is built around the study of operas, each their own curriculum and faculty. Our International Faculty consists of elite industry professionals and world-renown opera singers, to educate, discover, and promote young singers. Our selected participants will be working on all aspects of vocal technique, dramatic interpretation, as well as style and repertoire. Additionally, our Industry Development Seminars will focus on valuable career insights such as Self-Marketing, selecting the right social media practices, networking , branding, self-filming, and overall professional presentation in the new, digitally- driven, fast passed, world.
