Is there an age limit?
There is a flexible age limit of 35 for the Absolute Artist and Baroque Opera Boot Camp programs, although we are happy to consider older applicants on a case-by-case basis. There is no age limit for participation in the Cabaret Conservatory, Vocal Technique Intensive, Impro Theater Summer Intensive, or Napa Composers Workshop. Older students are welcome and encouraged to apply. The Napa Teen Vocal Track serves students ages 14-18.
Is there a perk for returning students?
Yes. Returning students will receive 1 bonus voice or coaching lesson from the teacher of their choice.
Can I participate in more than one program?
Yes, in some circumstances. Students not enrolled in a full session (24-day) program may combine shorter programs up to a maximum of the 24-day full session as scheduling permits. Please note your request in the “Program” column of your Festival application. The following programs may be combined: Vocal Technique Intensive; Cabaret Conservatory; Napa Teen Vocal Track; Napa Composers Workshop.
I’ve just found out about NAPA but I’ve missed the deadline. Can I still apply?
Late applications may be submitted directly to the Festival Administrator for consideration. Late payment penalties will apply.
If I have more than one friend who enrolls, am I entitled to more than one Referral Rebate?
Yes. Students may earn multiple Referral Rebates up to a maximum of full tuition remission.
I’m already enrolled in the Festival, but I’ve just found out I can’t attend. Can I get a refund?
Tuition payments are non-refundable.
When will casting decisions be announced?
Casting decisions will be announced on a rolling basis as applications are received. It is therefore highly recommended that you submit your application as soon as possible.
Does the Festival arrange for my travel?
Students must arrange for their own travel to and from the Festival, including shuttle service or rental car from the airport to Festival Check-in/Check-Out in Napa.
