The 19-20 competition was funded by Dr. Thomas H. Powell
There will be two categories of participation, an undergraduate division (Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors only) and a graduate division (MM, GPD, AD, or DMA). It is expected that singers will consult with their applied teacher prior to submitting their online application.
Conservatory voice majors who meet the year of study requirement and are enrolled in a degree or certificate program may apply. Students must be enrolled in applied lessons to be eligible. Former first prize winners are ineligible to compete.
