Welcome to Mira, a program for mentoring young women singers.

Offered annually, Mira educates future generations of singers and classical music supporters. Mira singers are welcomed to a spring performance of Elektra’s regular season. There are five Monday night rehearsals leading up to the 2018 concert, plus an intensive period from May 2-5 of afternoon and evening rehearsals and concerts. Full details in the attached handbook.
