About Triangle Opera Studios

Triangle Opera Studios (TOS) is a non-rofit organization designed to offer performance opportunities to singers in the Triangle community who show potential to make successful careers as professional performing artists.

TOS seeks to bridge that wide gap between the voice studio and the professional stage for aspiring professionals and offer the public quality opera performances at little or no cost. Our singers are not paid to perform nor are they charged outrageous tuitions to take part in our activities. Participants have only been asked to help defray some of the production costs in return for the opportunity to perform under expert supervision.
