The COVID-19 compliance statement:
At Aquilon Music Festival we are committed to abiding by all federal, state, and county public health guidelines.  While we are continuing careful preparations for the 2022 summer season, the safety of our participants, faculty and audience is our number one priority. With this in mind, the reopening of the festival in the summer of 2022 will depend entirely on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Please note that proof of vaccination will be required in order to attend the festival.

We are making the following adjustments to the application procedure:

1. We will no longer be able to hold live auditions.

2. We are committed to fully refunding all housing and tuition deposits in the case of this season's cancellation.

3. We have reduced the application fee by 50% from $50 to $25.  Unfortunately, since the application review process requires many hours of work on our side, we are unable to refund the application fees.

LATE APPLICATION (Deadline April 3, 2022)

We invite qualified singers to apply to our upcoming opera workshop. The successful candidates will be cast in the program of scenes from standard operatic repertoire, including excerpts from the Magic Flute, Così fan Tutte, La bohème, Eugene Onegin, La Traviata, L'elisir d'amore and Dido and Aeneas.


Please note that our needs for most roles in the mainstage production of OURLAND have been met. We are still looking to cast the roles of Barkeeper (Bass or Baritone) and the Doctor (Bass or Baritone).

​Upload your résumé, headshot and provide two or three YouTube videos that best demonstrate your level of development. We realize that due to the quarantine restrictions, reserving the services of a pianist might be difficult. In lieu of this, we are happy to accept YouTube clips that utilize backing tracks.
