Arts Integra Summer Program

I just received this information last week and thought I would pass it on!

The Arts Integra International Summer Programs offer emerging artists and professional singers, actors, pianists, directors and teachers of all ages and experience, an opportunity to develop their craft, hone their skills and enhance their repertoire by learning new roles. Participants will perform in professionally staged productions with possible exposure to Directors, Conductors, the Media and Artists Management Representatives.

Located in historic Unionville of the Greater Toronto Area, students will receive instruction and guidance in a full range of innovative classes and professional coaching, voice lessons, Master classes, role & scene preparation, interpretation, language, diction, and advice on audition
preparation and career development, preparing them to be entrepreneurial and competitive in the global marketplace in a supportive and nurturing environment by some of the most highly regarded professionals in their field.

Participants are required to pay for their own meals, lodging, travel and
insurance. Optional group excursions to local restaurants and attractions
may be planned throughout each session.

Summer Program session dates are as follows:
SESSION I: June 1st, 2009 - June 13th, 2009
SESSION II: June 15th, 2009 - June 27th, 2009
SESSION III: August 4th, 2009 - August 14th, 2009

AUDITION INFORMATION: See Website for details

Tuition for each session may be paid and withdrawn in two installments as
follows: First installment per session due April 1st,
2009: Canadian Residents: $875
International Residents: $1400

Musical Productions will be accompanied by piano or keyboard, and performed in the original language. All participants must participate in various chorus works in addition to solo roles, and will be expected to arrive with their parts securely memorized.

Arts Integra is committed to bringing the Arts to the community, and the community to the Arts. We encourage members of the community to step out of their daily experience while giving performance experience to highly gifted and trained young professional performers, building a new generation of audiences and patrons of the Arts. Rehearsals and performances will take place at various venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

UPDATE from the AD (March 30.09):
"...we've moved the deadline for payment of tuition. It will no longer be on April 1st. Auditions will be held in Toronto/Unionville on May 1st and 2nd. Deadline for audition applications is April 30th. The initial payment won't be due until May 4th, if accepted into the program".
