In July, Austin will be traveling to Princeton, New Jersey to attend CoOPERAtive, a 3-week opera training program. The faculty includes internationally acclaimed conductors, directors, movement specialists and performers including: Martin Katz (world renowned accompanist), Pierre Vallet (Metropolitan Opera), Kathleen Kelly (Vienna State Opera), Susan Ashbaker (MET National Council judge), Eric Weimer (Lyric Opera of Chicago), Anthony Manoli (Washington National Opera), and Sandra Bernhard (Houston Grand Opera). By attending this program Austin hopes to make strides in his singing, acting, and all aspects of performance in order prepare him for next year's audition season. The CoOPERAtive program offers approximately 28-30 hours for each participant per week of private coachings, classes and masterclasses, three performance opportunities each week with aria concerts and art song recitals.

Austin has recently completed his first year of graduate study at University of Texas at Austin.  Even though Austin had a especially productive year in school, summer programs like CoOPERAtive are essential to his development and future as a musician. Austin has already received a $700 scholarship which has helped defray
costs significantly.
