The Guild Hall & Bel Canto Boot Camp Resident Artist Series is a collaboration between Guild Hall of East Hampton and Bel Canto Boot Camp. By providing individualized training from Bel Canto Boot Camp mentors and masterclasses with international artists, the series aims to support a new generation of emerging opera singers and to increase awareness and appreciation of the unamplified voice.
The 2023 Guild Hall & Bel Canto Boot Camp Resident Artists include soprano Siskelelwe Mngenela, soprano Elizabeth Novella, mezzo-soprano Anne Marie Stanley, tenor Derrek Stark, bass-baritone Michael Leyte-Vidal, and baritone David Wolfe.
The 2023 Series will welcome today’s most in-demand lyric coloratura soprano, Lisette Oropesa. During her week in residency at Guild Hall, Oropesa will lead a masterclass with six of the GH & BCBC Resident Artists and perform a solo recital featuring duets and ensemble numbers with the resident artists.
Applications for the 2023 Resident Artist Series are now closed.
