CADF is also proud to support the 2012 Butler School of Music Young Artist Program (BOCYAP). As a vocal program for young singers in the 16 to 19 year-old range, BOCYAP gathers a select group of students offering a mix of talents and abilities and provides them the opportunity to attend weekly summer classes in voice, diction, acting, dance, and many other skills pertaining to the operatic stage, thus giving them a glimpse of the hard work required for a career in music. After a month of intensive training with talented vocal UT faculty, the students perform a final concert, participate in a competition and then return to their schools with added skills and a new confidence that comes from their BOCYAP experience.
Upcoming BOCYAP Deadlines
