Deadline to apply: March 15, 2016
As in the past, soloists for the CBASO & Chorus performance of the Brahms Requiem this spring will be selected through The American Prize nonprofit competitions in the performing arts. These annual competitions, founded by CBASO music director David Katz in 2009, have gained a national following, with contestants applying from every state in the union except Alaska.
If you know any excellent professional or pre-professional (college/university) singers who might be interested in being considered as soloists for the Brahms, complete information about the Chicago Oratorio Award may be found on the website: http://www.theamericanprize.org/vocalperf.html
And you can follow the progress of the competitions by liking The American Prize Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-American-Prize-celebrating-American-excellence-in-the-arts/214320622728?ref=ts
For more information about this additional opportunity, which is limited to applicants in the professional and college/university divisions of The American Prize contest, please download the opera/operetta or art song/oratorio application (link above.) There is no live competition. The American Prize judges recorded performances only.
