Students gain valuable interaction with world-renowned guest artists and professional faculty, and acquire skills needed to make performance an important part of their creative lives.

 

The program includes two weeks of master classes and performance opportunities alongside the O’Neill’s professional guest artists at the 2022 Cabaret & Performance Conference.

 

Alumni have gone on to: Royal Conservatory of Scotland, UC College-Conservatory of Music, NYU, UCLA, Northeastern University, University of Miami Theatre, Sony Music Entertainment, and NBC's The Voice.

 

The program is directed by concert artist, music director, composer, and teacher Brad Simmons (Camp, The Last Five Years, Lysistrata Jones, Hello Again) and Broadway arranger Michael Holland (12 Angry Men, Clue, Godspell).
