After a record year of applications, Institute is no longer accepting applications for Summer 2013. Please join us for the VPI Faculty Recital Wednesday, June 26.
The Vocal Performance Institute (VPI) is presented each summer for students in grades 9 through 12. All activities are held on the historic UD main campus and instruction is provided by Department of Music faculty, along with professional guest artists from Dayton-area organizations including the Dayton Opera and the Human Race Theater.
Throughout this five-day institute students participate in various workshops and master classes covering a myriad of topics. Students participate in lessons daily. They also receive private lessons, and have the opportunity to hear faculty and guest artists in recital. Students can attend the institute as residential campers or as commuters. The Institute culminates with a gala student recital that is open to families and friends.
