These are only a few words that describe the magical character of
IVAI. In the years of our existence, we have had the pleasure of training
more than one thousand singers who remain in our extended family.
We help young singers begin an often frightening, yet exciting career,
and we guide them through the middle years, which are perhaps the
toughest of all. Our faculty of great artists and our gifted participants
make the program richly rewarding. We offer an abundance of knowledge
and the opportunity to grow through interaction and operatic experience
with the very best.
