The Master?s programme in Voice deepens practical education and more demanding repertoire in the area of voice.The instruction is focused mainly on stylistic interpretation, and is supplemented by required practice sessions.Both years of the Master?s programme are completed with a final solo singing performance in the form of a public recital or concert with an orchestra. The skills acquired in the area of singing and acting, as well as theoretical knowledge in musical interpretation, can be verified by the student in practice through a major role in the opera studio under the direction of an experienced pedagogue and students in operatic directing.Already during the course of the Master?s programme, students have the opportunity to become involved in the practice or professional operatic theatres. The programme reflects new developmental trends in the area of learned interpretation and contemporary music in the form of block seminars. Subjects in musical aesthetics enable the student to acquire a wider overview in the area of music and independence in working on interpreting works of certain stylistic periods. They also enable him or her to shape a more refined operatic role technically, musically and psychologically.
Graduates can apply their skills in operatic ensembles of theatres in the Czech Republic and abroad, either as members of choirs or as soloists; in addition, they can become members of professional choir ensembles or devote themselves to chamber music.Graduates generally combine active artistic activity with pedagogical work at primary arts schools, conservatories, municipal cultural centres, musical academic high schools and primary schools.
