Voice and Opera Studies is a highly selective and unique program in the Purchase College Conservatory of Music, designed especially to train and mentor serious young singers in their pursuit of a career in professional classical singing and opera. The program offers a highly disciplined and completely integrated curriculum taught by a talented, passionate, committed, and caring faculty, all of whom were or are active, first-class performing artists. The Purchase Opera has won multiple first-place awards from the prestigious National Opera Association, beginning in 2004 through the 2010–12 award for Confession (Dominick Argento Chamber Opera Competition), the 2012–13 award for Die Fledermaus (Division II: Opera Production Competition), and the 2014 award for Hänsel und Gretel (Division I: Collegiate Opera Scenes Competition).
