The American University of Rome is proud to announce the inaugural session of The American University of Rome Summer Vocal Institute, from June 2 to June 28, 2014. The program will feature world renowned American Mezzo-Soprano opera singer Marilyn Horne as guest teacher from June 2 to June 7.Every country has its uniquely wonderful cultural expressions. However, Italy today still captures historically the spirit of singing and of opera in everyday life. Opera has never become just a performing arts media in this country, but still in many ways mirrors Italian culture and Italian people as they truly are today, on and off stage – even after 400 years of its invention. It is what makes studying singing in Italy unique. The operatic stage is before you in the Renaissance paintings, in the Baroque architecture and in the Classical Mediterranean culture, innately Romantic.The American University of Rome is committed to creating an intensely unique vocal musical experience in the Eternal City where the first operas were heard a stone’s throw away in Florence. It is in Italy that Art and Music come together naturally in a visual and musical symbiotic relationship before one’s very eyes.Our vision is to enrich students with intense vocal singing instructions and coaching of both the song and operatic repertoire. Internationally acclaimed voice teachers and Italian coaches, combined with professional acting coaches, will provide individual musical care and stage craft skills to talented young singers and budding professional artists. Daily intense courses in the Italian language and diction for singers will be included, with the option of receiving college credit.The program will also provide its participants with Participation in Master Classes with Guest Artists and Performances (arias and ensembles) in Concerts in various venues in the City of Rome.


The following classes will be offered:

  • Applied Voice Lessons
  • Vocal Coaching
  • Opera Workshop
  • Italian Language I

I've learned that a teacher of mine -- a close family friend -- was a part of this batallion. He was drafted straight out of an internment camp, which is what is described in this article.
"I am not aware of the 442nd failing a single mission," said University of Utah historian John Reed. "Even great units can have a bad day. Yet the 442nd invariably achieved their objectives every time. The problem was that they did it with extremely high casualties."
Shigeru Matsukawa, 80, of Salt Lake City joined the 442nd -- with his mother's blessing -- shortly after his older brother, Isamie, was killed while fighting with the unit in Italy

Please help student stay in school.

My name is Jonathan. I am an American student studying in Italy at John Cabot University.I have been here in Rome for one year now. Studying in Italy gives me a first hand perspective on history and diplomacy while allowing me to fulfill in my monthly obligations to the military in Vicenza, Italy. I am a soldier in the Army Reserve. I also work at an American pub here in Rome and at the University whenever the opportunity arises.Studying in Italy also offers me a chance to closely examine one of my favorite European cultures. I adore Italian cuisine, art and coffee. Living abroad will give me an opportunity to sharpen my linguistic skills that are essential for any aspiring diplomat
