We pride ourselves in being a program that is successful because of the participation of a mixture of undergraduate music majors and non-majors and graduate voice students. When students are interested in opera, we understand the educational value to them in whatever field they will pursue. We are stronger because of our inclusive approach to participation. Additional collaborations with the dance program and the theatre department have rejuvenated our creativity and created a professional atmosphere in which students participate in the highly collaborative process of bringing an opera to the stage.

"As a Vocal Performance major at UNI I have had life changing opportunities while being a part of the UNI opera ensemble. It's amazing to think that I am able to learn how to move an audience while making lifelong friendships at the same time."

"The opera program at UNI has provided me with a family that has not only encouraged growth on stage, but provided skills necessary to succeed off stage in academia. Because of this program and the talented team who direct it, I have found a deep love and appreciation for not only this art and university, but the family I have come to know because of it."
