At Schmidt Vocal Arts, our pride in our alumni runs deep.

Schmidt Vocal Arts’ programs have been serving singers for more than two decades. That means there are many great singers who are now part of the Schmidt Alumni Network. Our alumni come from almost all 50 states, have attended premier universities and conservatories, and many enjoy successful careers in the arts.

The Schmidt Alumni Network is a vibrant and interconnected group of vocal artists who share a passion for classical singing. From initial connections made through Schmidt Vocal Arts programs, alumni continue to share news of auditions, events, tips, and more through social media.
