Bel Canto Summer Voice Program was established in 2010 by Australian Soprano Narelle Martinez. After 25 years’ experience living and working in Europe, her dream was to set up a serious voice program in the heart of Europe and what better city than Munich. Personally chosen instructors have all worked and lived in Germany and have a vast experience in German opera houses.   

Bel Canto Summer Voice Program offers singers and collaborative pianists the opportunity to experience the musical and cultural riches of opera through study and performance in Munich, Germany. Located in the heart of Munich, this program is geared for singers of all stages of vocal development who are aspiring to enter the professional theatre world. The program provides insight into the German opera system. Audition training participants have the opportunity to sing for German opera agents.

One of the most valuable parts of a program is experiencing working and singing with others. At Bel Canto all of our participants will have the chance to sing in ensembles, duets, and scenes as well as individual arias which have been staged.
