Description

Emerging artists from the Opera Academy program will perform in  master classes with world renowned opera directors, singers, and coaches. Audiences can see masters at work and witness the process of the emerging artist improving in performance right on the stage.

Jane Randolph’s 25 years of experience teaching voice to students has led her across North America, from L’Atelier de L’Opéra de Montréal and L’Université de Montréal to establishing private studios in San Diego, San Francisco and New York. Her students have sung in major national and international opera companies and have been winners of countless prestigious competitions, such as the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the San Francisco Opera Auditions and the Operalia-Domingo Competition.

After completing her studies at the University of California–Santa Barbara, the University of California–Los Angeles and the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg, Germany, Randolph spent four seasons as a coloratura soprano at the Staatstheater in Luzern, Switzerland. She subsequently enjoyed an extensive career in opera, recital and oratorio in the United States, Europe and Australia. Randolph is renowned for her commitment to her students as well as her passion for the art of singing.

About the Ticket Supplier: Opera Academy of California

The Opera Academy of California (OAC, rhymes with "oak") is a non-profit charitable and educational organization, founded to educate new audiences about opera, and to give promising young singers an opportunity to polish their craft. We believe that bringing quality performers and appreciative audiences together will broaden the number of people who become passionate about this wonderful form of musical theatre.

We opened the Opera Academy in June of this year with an appreciation class for audiences on "The Queen of Spades" just prior to the San Francisco Opera's presentation of this Tchaikovsky classic. We are developing a series of opera appreciation classes based on the season of the SF Opera and Opera Companies around the Bay Area. In the future, we will have Master classes for singers that will be open to you. These public Master classes are a great opportunity for opera aficionados to get a behind-the-scenes peek into the work that singers and directors put into the dramatic performance you see on the stage.
