Alice Asquith returns to OYO this year as our resident Italian diction coach after her role as French diction coach last summer. With over fifteen years experience as arts management consultant and programmer for Harmonia Mundi USA, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and LA Opera, Alice has coached some of the world's finest singers, including the late, great Lorraine Hunt Lieberson and Placido Domingo. Now an Ojai resident, OYO is thrilled to have Alice on our staff inspiring our young singers with her irreplaceable knowledge and expertise. Alice grew up in France, England and Switzerland where a love of languages was part of her natural development. Coaching singers of any age in French, German and Italian is a special challenge and privilege Alice greatly enjoys!
