Michigan Opera Theatre Studio Artists: Summer Serenade


A jewel in our SummerFest lineup, War Memorial partner Michigan Opera Theatre returns to the stage with an entrancing concert of music from the opera and Broadway stages.

The five resident artists of Michigan Opera Theatre Studio – soprano Cheyanne Coss, mezzo-soprano Katherine DeYoung, tenor Michael Day, baritone Harry Greenleaf, and bass Allen Michael Jones represent some of the most exciting emerging talent in opera today. Coming to Detroit from all different areas of the country, these young opera professionals gain valuable experience through myriad performance opportunities in main stage and community productions, and regional outreach presentations. Throughout their residency, studio artists benefit from advanced individual training and guidance from MOT’s Director of Resident Artist Programs, American tenor, Richard Leech, and Studio Principal Coach/Accompanist, Tessa Hartle, and hone their skills through master classes and instruction from an array of world class professionals, guest artists, and coaches.

Free and open to all — no registration is required.
