The American Prize is pleased to announce the semi-finalist women in the ART SONG division: professional, college/university and high school 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 shortly.

If you were not chosen as a semi-finalist, the competition is not yet over. The judges reserve the right to award Honorable Mentions, Citations, and other recognition to praiseworthy applicants later in the process. Non-semi-finalists will also receive certificates.
