The Academy of Vocal Arts

Vocal and Opera Training Program

The Academy of the Vocal Arts is the only nationally accredited conservatory in the United States exclusively devoted to the training of young opera singers, tuition-free. Artists from throughout the states and all over the world audition to study and perform in AVA's four-year program. Only those with tremendous potential are accepted to the Academy, where they receive the equivalent of more than $100,000 in training each year, free of charge.
