Applications and Auditions

The Seminar is the centerpiece of the Castleton Festival, founded by Maestro Lorin Maazel and Dietlinde Turban Maazel. The program is designed to offer one of the broadest preparations for pre-professional singers available in the U.S. today. The bucolic surroundings and the select number of participants allow for a personal mentor-student relationship and contribute to a full immersion that is impossible in larger festival environments. We encourage participants to focus on more than just technical mastery. The holistic approach to education highlights the significance of integrity, building on a foundation of substance and excellence, enhancing empathy and the spirit of community beyond the arts.
