Studio Artists

Studio Artists come from some of the best music schools in the country. Our studio program offers them time onstage—an invaluable opportunity to both perform and to observe their colleagues. This summer, Studio Artists will cover Filene Artists and sing in the ensemble in mainstage productions, and in the choruses of shows at the Barns; they will also engage with guest artists and faculty in a tailor-made curriculum.
