Festival Program Details

The Singing Artists Festival was established by Resonanz Opera for singers who want to bring their talent to the mainstage. It is a training program that helps support the development of aspiring opera singers at all stages of their career. The Festival will also unite the national scene and local talent with the Singing Artists and esteemed teachers, from the Cleveland area and nationally. Singing Artists will receive coaching, voice instruction, masterclasses, Yoga, Yoga tune-up, and Mindfulness. Additionally, Singing Artists will perform in the smaller roles of the mainstage production of Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, in the chorus, and they will cover the bigger roles. Singers are still being selected from our auditions to attend the Singing Artists Festival’s full program at this time.

A Brief History of the
Music and Drama Club

The Music and Drama Club was formed by 22 Painesville women in 1923. Originally all members had performance capabilities and most performances were done by members at Lake Erie College facilities. Currently only a few members have performance level skills and most of our six programs a year are by guest artists. Meetings of the sixty membership group are held in and around the Painesville-Mentor area.

Since 1931 we have provided a yearly scholarship to a deserving Lake Erie College student of music or drama. In addition since 1961 we have given summer music camp scholarships to local high school students. Currently we are providing three such awards, one each to a Fairport Harding student, a Harvey student, and a Riverside student to the Lakeland Summer Jazz Camp.
