UPDATE: Because of COVID 19, ‘live’ auditions will not be held for the final round of auditions on February 20. In lieu of live auditions, a minimum of 25 singers’ video submissions, bios and resumes will be shown to 3 qualified judges on February 20, 2021. Applicants are still required to fill out 4 arias on their repertoire list, but only the videos will be heard by the judges. Please submit your best sound and visual quality video and updated bios and resumes. We gladly accept videos made at home, in a House of Worship, recording studio or any venue with a piano. We do not encourage videos of performances unless the visual quality is outstanding. Any questions, please contact the Artistic Director at Catherine.miller@pasadenavocalcompetition.org
