Young Artists of Voice Competition opens Jan. 15

Brigham Young University’s best student singers will compete before judges—including renowned mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade—for the title of “Singer of the Year” in the School of Music’s Young Artists of Voice Competition Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, Jan. 15, 17 and 19.

The first round of the competition will be held on Tuesday, the second round on Thursday and the concluding performance and competition on Saturday. Each performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. All events are free and the public is welcome to attend.

This year, the final round will be adjudicated by Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade. Since her 1970 debut, von Stade’s career has taken her to the stages of the world's great opera houses and concert halls. She has appeared with every leading American opera company and performed with many of the world’s finest opera companies, conductors and symphony orchestras.

The top 30 vocal students will compete in the first and second rounds. The final nine or ten students will be judged by von Stade in the final round as they compete for the title of “Singer of the Year” as well as a cash award.
