The Taos Opera Institute ( June 2018 Schedule!

(From the website) TOI (Taos Opera Institute) was established by Mary Jane Johnson and Linda Poetschke in 2007 as a four-week, intensive program designed to bridge the gap between academia and apprenticeships for the emerging young vocal artist. Our philosophy focuses on integrating and improving your technique, your physical well being, and your artistry.

Singers participate in interactive sessions with distinguished guests and professional artists, focusing on competition psychology, performance anxiety, audition strategies, stage deportment, dramatic interpretation, and vocal stability.  Singers leave TOI with a complete audition package, confidently preparing them for the next level of their career development.

 "I've just finished this blog post which includes photographs of all 84 Taos is Art Banners. It has taken me 5 days to photograph all of the banners, which drove me a bit off the wall when I couldn't find the 84th one. Thanks to Karina and Paul for helping to solve the mystery of the 84th banner! All are accounted for."

 "People have asked for a map, this isn't quite that but it is in order from North to South.
Thank you to everyone involved."
