 an additional opportunity for vocalists:

CHICAGO ORATORIO AWARD: selecting soloists for the Brahms Requiem

Deadline to apply: March 15, 2016

Complete information about the Chicago Oratorio Award may be found on the website:

In 2016, in addition to national competitions in art song and opera, two $750 prizes will be awarded as performance fees to soloists selected to appear under Maestro David Katz's baton in concert with the Chicago Bar Association Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, in May 2016, performing the Brahms German Requiem, at St James Episcopal Cathedral, Chicago. 

For more information about this additional opportunity, which is limited to applicants in the professional and college/university divisions, please download the opera/operetta or art song/oratorio application. 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.  

There is no live competition. The American Prize judges recorded performances only.
