The FINALISTS are:

BARITONES:

Alexander York

SOPRANOS:

Teresa Winner Blume
Rosalind Lee
Lisa Newill-Smith

CONGRATULATIONS!

The selection process for the Chicago Oratorio Award is separate from The American Prize judging. Winning one competition does not preclude the possibility of winning the other.

The American Prize has selected soloists to perform with the Chicago Bar Association Symphony and Chorus the last five years, in repertoire ranging from the Bruckner Te Deum and Beethoven Choral Fantasy, to a complete evening of opera excerpts and another featuring the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein.
