Auditions Day 2013 this year will be Auditions Evening 2013
We are grateful to the Kennedy Center for again making room for us during a very busy Inauguration season. We hope you will join us on Friday, January 18 at 7:30 in the Terrace Theater, Kennedy Center for another group of splendid young singers, an evening of wonderul arias and an exciting competition.
The judges at our District Auditions at The Barns of Wolf Trap in November and at Philadelphia’s Academy of Vocal Arts in December have chosen 14 singers to participate in our Region Finals, including 5 sopranos, 1 mezzo, 4 tenors, 1 baritone and 3 bass-baritones. Each will sing two arias for you and the panel of three judges as they compete for prize money and the opportunity to go to New York for the 2013 National Semi-Finals.
Winners of that competition will then appear with orchestra on the Met stage in the Grand Finals Concert on Sunday March 10 at 3 p.m. and perhaps win one of those $15,000 prizes. That concert will be conducted by Marco Armiliato and features the soprano and former Auditions winner, Sondra Radvanovsky as host and guest artist.
Tickets for the Kennedy Center Region Finals are still $32 and will go on sale at the Kennedy Center on Monday, January 7.
