The Castleton Festival includes opera, chamber music, and orchestral performances open to the public, and behind the scenes is a whirlwind of activity and learning. Among the opportunities is CATS, the Castleton Artists Training Seminar, where young performers have voice lessons with world-renowned faculty, acting technique instruction, language studies, and much more.
