Emerging Opera Composer Residency

Emerging Opera Composer Residency

15 Oct - 01 Dec, 2021

Chicago Opera Theater opens applications for its Vanguard Initiative Emerging Opera Composer Program for the September 2022 - April 2024 cycle. This is a two-year development program that places an emphasis on building skills and connections for emerging opera composers in Chicago and the Midwest. Composers in the program will have established and demonstrable skills in instrumental composition, vocal composition, and orchestration (whether “traditional” or non-traditional), and will have a strong interest in dramatic storytelling through music, but may or may not have experience with opera or theatrical production. During the program residency, composers are required to reside in the greater Chicago area.

All materials should be emailed to by December 1. If you have submitted materials in the past we encourage you to resend them with updated and current information. The current stipend amount is $16,000 for the 9-month residency period, subject to funding renewal.
Closing date: 01 Dec 2021
