What People Are Saying About Us

These collaborations with NMPAS have been a priceless and inspirational gift to my students… [Franz Vote] brings out creativity and excellence in my students.

NMPAS is one of the finest performing ensembles in our state…Comprised of some of the best operatic soloists living in the area, the chorus resounds with brilliant musical expression under the direction of conductor Franz Vote… Maestro Vote is a conductor of opera…to whom no one here can hold a candle in expertise and experience.

Seattle’s ‘Ring’ [conducted by Franz Vote] was often beautiful, conceptually unified … and musically strong … Mr. Vote brought vigor and textural clarity to the score.
