WIAV will work with a select number of singers from around the world, under the directorship of the renowned Welsh tenor Dennis O’Neill CBE and artists of national and international standing.
We are pleased to announce that Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has agreed to serve as Honorary President and contribute to the teaching programme.
The new generation of opera singers face a faster, more demanding commercial profession than in the past.
Recognising his earlier success in the field, the newly formed University of Wales Trinity Saint David, invited Dennis O’Neill to establish an International Academy of Voice.
By virtue of its limited student intake the Academy is able to operate an intense and personalised programme.
The Academy seeks to attract a number of significant national and international sponsors in order to offer scholarships in the future.
Born in Wales, Dennis O'Neill has enjoyed a long career as one of the world’s leading Operatic tenors appearing for all the leading companies of the world.
