Hi! My name is Ian Pathak and I am a Voice Performance Major at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. I was recently accepted into The 2022 Aspen Summer Music Festival as a Studio Artist. The Aspen Music Festival is one of the world's most recognized music academies. It gives young musicians the skillsets they need to be successful in the arts. Out of a 500 voice student applicant pool, I was one of 30 selected studio artists to study at Aspen for their eight-week summer festival. At Aspen, I will have the opportunity to study vocal performance through opera, chamber music, musical theatre, and so many other genres of music. I will also have the opportunity to learn from and study with accomplished artists such as Renée Fleming, Carol Vaness, Vinson Cole, among so many others. It would truly be a dream come true to attend the Aspen Music Festival and I hope you can help make that happen!
