Carl Frank '10 Named a Resident Artist for Florentine Opera Company
June 14, 2012
Carl Frank, a baritone and 2010 graduate of DePauw University, has been named a resident artist for the Florentine Opera Company's 2012-13 Studio Program.
"Hundreds of applicants audition for the Florentine Opera Company’s four final residency positions," notes an announcement from the company. "For the four selected, the Studio Program offers a full season of artist-in-residence employment for these talented singers beginning their professional careers, and will run from September 2012 through May 2013, to provide performing experience and training essential to career development in the opera art form."
The 2012-13 Studio Artists will sing supporting and comprimario roles during each of the Florentine Opera's mainstage performances; Bizet’s Carmen, Britten’s Albert Herring and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. They will also serenade audiences with classic love songs in their own concert, That’s Amore, in February 2013.
A major focus of the Studio Artists will be to bring the Florentine’s 2012-2013 season children’s touring opera program, Little Red’s Most Unusual Day, to over 70 schools and community venues throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
A political science and vocal performance double major at DePauw, Frank earned a Masters of Music from the University of Michigan. Read more here.Back
