Just blocks away from major opera companies, music venues, theaters, museums, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Roosevelt’s campus is in the center of one of America’s most culturally vibrant and influential cities. CCPA students have regular opportunities to hear and see renowned and emerging artists, and can also start their professional life while in school by participating in internships or apprenticeships, singing in professional choruses, teaching in arts enrichment programs, collaborating with student colleagues on creative projects, and networking with professional artists who call Chicago home.
All students in our program study privately with their applied teacher for the duration of their degree program and—starting in their sophomore year—also have a weekly private lesson with our vocal coaches.
Our faculty also teach courses and master classes with an emphasis on technique and musicality and performing arts career seminars specific to the business of being a singer. This professional development aspect adds career acceleration to the stellar technical and musical preparation.
