Vocal Competition


On Sunday, March 18th at 3:00 p.m., Annapolis Opera will host the 24th Annual Vocal Competition. Opera lovers can create a new Opera 'Idol' by voting for the Audience Choice Award. Eight young finalists will compete for prizes of over $10,000! The winner will also be given the opportunity to participate this summer in the prestigious International Vocal Arts Institute and study with opera's most famous stars, such as Sherrill Milnes, Mignon Dunn, and Ruth Falcon.

This year the Competition will be doing something different that is sure to be a treat for opera fans and novices alike. Audiences will be able to hear these 'Idols' in the making at the semi-finals on Saturday, March 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., where 30 young hopefuls vie for one of the top eight spots. These young singers were among the best out of nearly 100 applications received.

Audiences may come and go throughout the day or participate in the all day event. For the 'competitors' in the audience, fill out your own Judging Sheet to see if you can choose the top eight singers that make the cut, and win tickets to the final dress rehearsal of Gounod's Romeo & Juliet, to be presented in May 2012.

Unlike American Idol, the young singers will not be required to do commercials or tour with their co-finalists, but you may just see a few of them in an upcoming Annapolis Opera production.

Because of very generous support provided by the Helena Foundation, the semi-finals and finals concert are made accessible to the general public for FREE. Annapolis Opera encourages you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to hear the 'Opera Idols' of tomorrow!

No tickets necessary. Both events will take place at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. For more information, please call 410.267.8135 or visit
