Kelly Miller, a sophomore vocal performance major, has been selected to participate in The Opera Training Institute of Chicago’s inaugural summer program in June.

The program, presented by Watson Studios’ William and Tracey Watson, is designed for advanced students and young professionals seeking to gain training in opera. During the month, Kelly and 19 other students chosen by audition, will have voice lessons and vocal coaching, will sing for master classes led by professional opera singers, and will perform opera scenes.

Kelly, from Barrington, Ill., is a student of Mrs. Kim Keck and has been involved in the Bryan Opera Theatre scenes program for the past two years. She performed the roles of Frasquita in Carmen and Despina in Cosi fan tutte. Most recently she played the role of Miss Silverpeal in the one-act opera, The Impresario. Kelly is also involved in the Bryan Chorale and Chamber Singers.

“Kelly is a talented, hard-working young woman who has a great future in music,” Mrs. Keck said. “I am very excited to see what doors God will open for her as a musician as she matures both as a singer and actress. Programs such as the Opera Training Institute of Chicago are instrumental in strengthening a singer such as Kelly. This is a wonderful opportunity for her to see what performing will be like with professionals in the field.”
