SEMI-FINALISTS (MEN) in OPERA

The American Prize is pleased to announce the semi-finalist men in the Opera division in both professional and college/university categories. Finalists will be chosen from this list, from which the final winners of The American Prize in Vocal Performance Friedrich and Virginia Schorr Memorial Awards will be chosen. In addition to this blog listing, semi-finalists and their media contacts will be emailed this information after the first of the year.
