Step 2: Fill out the online application form : Click the purple button down below to fill out the online singer application form after you have made your application fee payment. Remember to click "submit" at the very end. You will be contacted via email once we receive your application fee and filled out online form.


All first time singing program participants will be contacted to set up a Zoom meeting. We will chat to get to know each other and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. This meeting should last no longer than 10 minutes. Please be in a quiet room without any disturbances, interruptions, cell phones or email notifications, loud pets, etc. You will also be asked to vocalize through the middle, low, and upper registers, on different vowels, so your voice can be assessed and for ensemble placement. You will be asked to vocalize a cappella (no accompaniment) and to modulate by half steps up and down. There is no sight-singing as you will learn your repertoire thoroughly months in advance before we arrive in Portugal.

ALUMNI:  Program alumni from summers 2022 and 2023 are exempt from the application Zoom meeting unless one wants to switch voice parts. Alumni from 2019 and earlier are not exempt from the Zoom meeting, however, and will be contacted to sign up for a time.


New for summer 2024 and to ensure the artistic integrity of the program ensemble, ALL SINGERS will be expected to meet individually on Zoom once a month for a 15 minute repertoire learning check-in, beginning with the month of March, then once in April, and once in May, that is, three times, unless released by the artistic director. In these short "check-ins" the participant will be asked to sing certain measures of the repertoire, or speak in rhythm, etc., as well as have the opportunity to ask specific questions regarding the repertoire.


If you have any questions please send an email to We look forward to receiving your application and we thank you for considering our unique and life transforming choral and cultural program in Portugal.
