Located in Gallup, New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment Opera Institute was founded in 2009 in order to refine the talents of gifted young singers looking to hone their skills in a pre-professional environment.  This five week training program consists of daily lessons and coachings for each student, as well as master classes with an all-star faculty.  Additionally, students will sing in several public concerts, including scenes performances, the yearly donors’ dinner, and other events scheduled throughout the program.  Students will also participate in movement classes and acting seminars.
