Vann Vocal Institute

This year marks the Vann Vocal Institute’s 14th year! Although there are some traditional elements of the event which are not possible this year, due to the ongoing pandemic, we are thrilled that we are still able to bring world-renowned opera singers to Montgomery for you to enjoy free of charge. Internationally Acclaimed Operatic Tenor, David Cangelosi, who serves as the Institute’s Artistic Director, is bringing an all-star collection of guest artists to join him at Troy University’s Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts. We hope you can join us on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 7:30pm for the Vann Vocal Institute Gala Celebrity Recital, and, as always, this recital is free and open to the public. We would love to see you there- this will be one of the can’t-miss events of the season!

Each year, the Vann Vocal Institute brings internationally renowned opera singers, vocal coaches and accompanists to Montgomery to serve as faculty for the two-day Institute, which includes intensive master classes and individual instruction for select singers, ages 18-29. Designed to encourage excellence in singing, the Institute is made possible through the bequest of Roy D. Vann and generous grants from the NIB Foundation and the Pauls Foundation.

For the safety of the students, and with profound respect for the challenges faced by our colleges and universities at this time, we will unfortunately not be able to hold the masterclasses and singing competition this year. We look forward to welcoming students back to the Vann Vocal Institute in 2022!

We hope that you will join us as we celebrate the 14th anniversary with a truly special performance by our guest artists on February 25th at 7:30pm at Troy University’s Davis Theatre. Recommended COVID-19 precautions will be in place, including socially distant seating and temperature checks, and masks/face coverings are required. 

This performance is free and open to the public, though tickets are required in order to monitor reduced seating capacity during the pandemic.
