Professional Recordings at Affordable Prices
One of the most essential tools needed by artists to advance their careers is a high-quality sound recording. From auditioning for opera companies, young artist programs and conservatories to entering competitions, an excellent recording is a fundamental (and often required) first step to being heard.

With OPERA America’s Recording Days, singers can achieve high-quality, professional recordings AND stay on budget! During one-hour appointments, singers work with professional sound engineers to record their material in the acoustically excellent Marc A. Scorca Hall at the National Opera Center.

Audio recording sessions, which are set with close mics and wind screens, allow for multiple takes, providing the best audio samples of your work. Note that singers must arrange to bring their own pianists.

New! Video Recordings Now Available
Record a high-definition video for just $25 more. Video recordings utilize an HD camera and ambient room mics to create an excellent sample of your full sound in a large hall. Sessions are available at 7:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. during each Recording Day.
