Opera contests for the middle-aged
Date: May 16, 2011
Pardon my off-topic query. After making little vocal progress in college 20 years ago i have found a teacher with whom I feel I am making leaps and bounds with! She mentioned (before she knew my true age) about the young singers' contests run by the Met. After finding I am in my early 40's she drew a blank on contests, other than auditioning for our local opera company. I would like to make a name outside our small city and would like to know of any opera singing competitions on the east coast that take late-comers such as myself. thank you for any leads you may think of.
