Annapolis Opera's 30th Annual Vocal Competition

For over 29 years, Annapolis Opera's Vocal Competition has given opera students and young professionals in the mid-Atlantic region the opportunity to hone their craft by performing for a blue-ribbon panel of judges comprised of respected music educators and opera performers. It also gives Artistic Director Ronald J. Gretz a chance to discover new talent for upcoming Annapolis Opera productions. The competition is fierce, with the eight finalists selected from more than 100 outstanding applicants! Prizes total more than $10,000, with each finalist receiving from $500 to $3,500.

Held at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, the competition spans a weekend, with both semi-finals and finals opera to the public, and is FREE, due to a generous grant from the Helena Foundation, Jim and Sylvia Earl.

Semi-Finals: Saturday, April 28, 2018, at 10 AM
Finals: Sunday, April 29, 2018, at 3 PM
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts | 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD
