Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance

A wealth of opportunities for singers to learn and perform.

Singers on a stage

As a voice major at Mizzou, you’ll have many chances to perform, both as a soloist and as a member of an ensemble. Each student has an hour-long private lesson each week, in addition to a weekly studio class. There are a variety of choral ensembles, which, along with a thriving opera workshop, rehearse several times each week. Students also have the opportunity to work with instrumentalists in the rehearsal and performance of chamber works, as well as with invited guest clinicians in master classes.

Voice students participate in concerts and on campus, such as the Voice/Piano Collaborative Recital with Fortepiano, the Friends of Music Gala, Convocation recitals, degree recitals, and community outreach performances. Voice majors also participate in National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) competitions. The Opera Workshop presents scenes every fall semester, and a fully staged production and a program of staged arias each spring semester.
