"The Redwoods Opera Workshop was exactly what I was looking for - an intensive workshop on performance techniques that transformed the way I look at character, music and movement on stage. I left a freer, stronger and more confident performer. Elizabeth and Adriana could not have been more supportive. I would recommend it to anyone." Jonathan Smucker (inaugural year)
"...a truly inspiring experience for me. The natural beauty of the surroundings, the supportive friendships that quickly arose between singers and faculty, and the abundance of wisdom and experience that the faculty brought to everything we learned (...a lot!) motivated me to perform my very best! Thank you everyone at ROW! " Sara Salas
The beauty of Mendocino matched with the beauty , passion, knowledge and experience of the dynamic teachers, coaches and other singers, made ROW the BEST training I have ever received in my 30+ years of studying vocal performance. The Elizabeth Vrenios lesson that, 'You are the master of your own musical destiny,' has focused and ignited my vocal energies in a whole new direction." Mary Beth Tell (2009)
One of the most valuable workshops I have attended, I learned more about stage craft from Elizabeth Vrenios and the staff in ten days at ROW than I did in the three years I spent in graduate school! The knowledge and experience of all the staff, who passionately share with the workshop participants, truly stand out as expertise excellence. Angela Moser (2009)
