District Auditions 2015


Schedule with aria selections and Program

Come cheer on our ninety applicants as they sing in front of a panel of distinguished judges (Gayletha Nichols, Mary Dunleavy and John Hancock) in the hopes of advancing to the Region Finals on January 14th. A schedule of singers will be available on our website soon. 
 
Schedule:
October 28th: 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 4.30pm
October 29th: 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 4.30pm
 
This schedule is tentative and subject to change as the auditions move along faster than expected. The winners will be announced on our website and social media in the evening of October 29th.
 
Your ticket gives access to both days of the auditions, and you can come and go as you please throughout the day. 
 
We want to give our singers the best possible chances when competing, and this means holding the auditions at a concert hall like Merkin.  We also like to provide our singers with great pianists and knowledgeable judges.
 
For the first time this season, the Eastern Region Committee will be underwriting the cost of running the auditions. This means that your ticket purhase will be used to award cash prizes to our singers. This money means a lot to the young singers who compete, as being a budding opera star is very expensive (for example, voice classes can cost $150 per hour).  The singers will use their prize money to further their careers, backed up by the advice from our wonderful judges.  
 
We hope you can make it!
