In addition to those conductors listed as finalists along with choral ensembles last week, one additional conducting applicant has been advanced to the finals for The American Prize in Conducting (Choral Division.)

Cameron F. LaBarr of Denton, Texas leading the University of North Texas Men's Chorus and the Denton Bach Choir and Orchestra.

Winners of The American Prize spring competitions in choral and orchestral performance and in conducting will be announced in June.

For those NOT chosen as finalists, the competition is not yet over. Different from many competitions where contestants who do not reach the semi-finals or finals are eliminated without further consideration or communication, each contestant, including those not advanced to the finals, whether an ensemble or individual, will receive an evaluation and may receive other awards.

Evaluations will be emailed after the winners are finally tabulated and announced in June. In this way, The American Prize seeks to provide encouragement to every one of its contestants, regardless of location, category or stature.

Thanks and best wishes to all contestants.
