After completing two years at Indiana University, I hope to join a young artist ensemble at a major opera house and eventually transition into an enjoyable and rewarding career as an operatic tenor.

Derrell Acon - Bass

University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music

I wish to pursue an international career in opera performance. I will work to retain my fluency in Italian and hopefully gain fluency in German and French. I would also like to continue participating in musicological scholarship, with the prospect of a professorship at a major university once my performance career has diminished to allow for it.

Andrew Manea - Baritone

I intend to graduate from CCM in the Spring of 2016 and pursue a professional singing career in opera. I will audition for young artist programs as well as for mainstage opportunities in major opera houses around the world.

Pedro André Arroyo-Ojeda - Tenor

University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music

As a DMA student in Voice, I wish to continue working on my performance skills and aspire to be a performer, be it in opera, oratorio and song recitals.

Besides this, thanks to my cognate in Arts Administration, I wish to create a Young Artist Program in Puerto Rico in the near future, giving young Puertorican singers a chance to perform scenes and roles, preparing them for the future. I also wish to write a book on the History of Puerto Rican Art Song, and teach voice.
