Music Theater Bavaria Inc
Our programs help young performing artists bridge the gap from university training to careers in opera and musical theatre.
Music Theater Bavaria (DBA Musiktheater Bavaria) is a Florida-based nonprofit devoted to performing arts education for emerging professional opera and musical theatre performers between the ages of 19 and 30. Students from throughout the United States (singers, dancers, and pianists) are competitively selected for our summer study-abroad program in Germany, where they train intensively for one month with world-class international faculty and perform in public concerts in either our Opera Studio or our Musical Theater Studio.
Our programs offer our students practical career training beyond what is provided in even very fine university and conservatory music and theater degree programs, giving them an extra edge that can make a difference in successfully launching their professional careers, introducing them to international opportunities they may have never dreamed exist, and providing the maturing effect of studying side by side with other highly talented colleagues from throughout the U.S. who are serious about learning how to compete in a tough business where their talent alone does not guarantee a career.
Need-based scholarship funding is a very important part of our mission, as the per-student cost of our month-long program in Germany (including room and board) is about $6,000. Our ability to offer scholarships is wholly dependent on donations to our scholarship fund. Donations to Musiktheater Bavaria through every.org will directly and personally benefit young performing artists, helping us to ensure that top applicants from all economic backgrounds can access these transformative opportunities for career-building and personal growth. Each summer our scholarship fund starts anew from zero, as each year we have awarded all the funds we have raised. Your gift is a gift of access to a highly talented student who could not otherwise dream of enrolling in our program.
