Professional Development Projects
XL Arts began facilitating Professional Development Projects in 2014. These projects are designed to help compliment a singer's current stage of development and provide performance opportunities and experiences that are not being provided in their tertiary studies.
The projects involve a series of masterclasses, forums and workshops to help expose the participants to new ideas and help develop and nurture their craft as a performer. Each project runs between 2-8 weeks with the project culminating in a fully staged opera performance with orchestra or concert format. Along with rehearsals for the productions.

2019 Summer Project
XL Arts Inc. professional development summer project for 2019 was an Introduction to singing in Russian. The six-week intensive course was conducted by Russian Repertoire Specialist Alan Cook, our Artistic Director Liane Keegan and Repetiteur Irina Cherkasski.
The project gave the participants an introduction to the vast amount of wonderful Russian repertoire in both art song and operatic repertoire, whilst also studying the Cyrillic Alphabet and pronunciation of the Russian language. The project culminated in two concerts for the participants to put into practice what they had learned throughout the course.
