Accepted Into American Institute Of Music Studies

Kevin Truax has been accepted into the American Institute of Music Studies (AIMS) in Graz, Austria, for six weeks this summer. AIMS, the leading European summer vocal program and the most comprehensive course of its kind, brings future opera and concert performers together with an eminent faculty and the outstanding AIMS Festival Orchestra in a stimulating, oneof a-kind experience. Dedicated to bridging the gap between musical training and a career in music, AIMS in Graz concentrates on individual technical development and a professional approach to a career in music. The focus is on the serious musician aspiring to a career in music.

Many young artists who participated in AIMS have become celebrated performers.

AIMS is an intensive training program in the study and performance of vocal music, both opera and German Lieder, as it relates to the singer and collaborative pianist.

Distinguished teachers from Europe and America with extensive teaching/ performing experience make up the AIMS Faculty.

With more than 30 performance opportunities during the six weeks, the AIMS Recital and Concert Series features opera and operetta concerts, song recitals and other musical programs in churches, concert halls, castles, courtyards, and other venues. The AIMS Festival in Graz features operatic and symphonic works and culminates with the annual Meistersinger Vocal Competition.

Kevin, son of Larry and Sue Truax, will be a senior at Susquehanna University and is a graduate of Southern Fulton High School. He gives God all the credit for his talent and would appreciate your prayers as he participates in this amazing opportunity.
