Studio LIS Voice is one of only two Black woman-owned and operated comprehensive opera training programs in the world. First established in 2015, we are a full-service artist development organization, creating resources, spaces, experiences, and opportunities for opera artists to thrive. Our programs are inclusive with an emphasis on the growth and development of BIPOC talent in the opera industry. More than 70% of our participants are BIPOC and we are strongly focused on filling the information, experience and relationship gaps that are created through the historical racism and inequity in the opera industry. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we offer the lowest tuition possible, as well as scholarships and payment plans to ensure that Studio LIS programs are accessible to artists in all economic positions.
