Visiting Master Artist Series
A Partnership of Westminster College, Utah Opera and the Florence J. Gillmor Foundation
Each year the Westminster music program welcomes renowned vocalists, conductors, vocal coaches and directors to campus for master classes with our students. This series is an exciting partnership between Utah Opera, the Florence J. Gillmor Foundation and Westminster College. Last year's series included the operatic superstar mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade and Utah's own opera star, soprano Celena Shafer. This year we welcome baritone Michael Chioldi, master teacher Mary Saunders and the Utah Opera Apprentices.
