Metropolitan Opera auditions at BYU to feature eight vocalists Jan. 22

Eight students from the Brigham Young University School of Music will perform for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions on Saturday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Students participating in the event are Camella Cañete, Jennie Litster, Marilyn Reid, Nadia Englund, Sara Thomas, Simone Hardisty, Lyndsay Stewart-Howell and Francesca Forsyth.

The students will sing a variety of arias by many composers including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Giacomo Puccini, Gaetano Donizetti, Georges Bizet and Samuel Barber.

Three purposes for the auditions are to discover exceptional talent, to provide a venue for opera singers to be heard by a representative of the Metropolitan Opera and to identify new talent for the Metropolitan Opera.

Winners of the audition can win a trip to New York to participate in the semifinals and then the national finals. Winners could receive up to $15,000.

Many acclaimed opera singers have participated in the auditions and received awards from the Metropolitan Opera National Council including Renee Fleming, Susan Graham, Deborah Voigt and Samuel Ramey.
