How our Ryan Opera Center Ensemble is continuing their training from home

Artists around the world are finding innovative ways to continue their craft and spark creativity in the new age of "working from home." Members of Lyric's Ryan Opera Center Ensemble are doing the same. From voice lessons and coachings via Zoom with our Director of Vocal Studies Julia Faulkner and Music Director Craig Terry, to memorization and language study, they are hard at work training and preparing for upcoming roles.

During this time, our artists have also found new and exciting ways to collaborate and share their gifts with the world. Through an online video series — Ryan Opera Center From Home — Ensemble members record themselves singing along to a prerecorded piano track. In the end, we are able to bring together one or more artists while still staying safely at home. Here are the videos from this fun series:
