Sing Bruckner's TE DEUM in Chicago—Four $500 contracts
CHICAGO ORATORIO AWARD
Four $500 prizes, one each for soprano, mezzo-soprano (alto), tenor, baritone (bass), will be awarded as performance fees to soloists selected to appear under the baton of Maestro David Katz in concert with the Chicago Bar Association Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, performing Bruckner's Te Deum on May 15, 2013 at St James Episcopal Cathedral, Chicago. (Dress rehearsal Tuesday evening, May 14, 2013, same location.)
This additional opportunity is offered as part of The American Prize in Vocal Performance / Friedrich and Virginia Schorr Memorial Awards national competition and is open to 2013 applicants in the professional and college/university categories, only.
Each winner will receive a $500 all-inclusive fee (no additional housing, travel or per diem), payment to be made on the day of the performance. Although the Chicago Oratorio Award is an additional contest open to all professional and college/university applicants for The American Prize in Vocal Performance, 2013, it is geared primarily to those who live within comfortable travel distance of Chicago and who can make their own housing arrangements.
