The Fellows Program is a select group of individuals who are provided with an intense course of study. With two classes daily, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, the Fellows prepare for a minimum of three public performances during the conference, but are also encouraged to experiment and sing nightly at the conference's open mic sessions.

Students selected to participate must be available July 31- August 10, from 9am-10pm daily. Due to the generous support of donors, the Junior Fellows program is fully funded and students will be provided with classes and meals at no cost. No housing or overnight accommodations are provided.
Auditions will be held Monday, May 6 from 2-6 p.m. by appointment only. Students auditioning should prepare a song of their choice and a short Stevie Wonder song. A piano will be available in the space. If students choose not to accompany themselves, a pianist will be provided. If accompaniment is desired, students must bring sheet music to the audition. Students who play instruments other than the piano are welcome to bring them with a short piece of their choice. Auditions will be held in the O’Neill’s Dina Merrill Theater.
