The Pasadena Vocal Competition
The Pasadena Vocal Competition (formerly Mentoris) is a 501-(c) 3 nonprofit organization, whose purpose is to financially support classical singers and promote community interest in opera. 2021 will mark the 4th year of the competition which has given away over $20,000 annually with funds awarded by the Pasadena Area Opera Trust.
The Trust was formed by the generous members of the Pasadena Opera Guild from 1967 to 2018. Numerous patrons, including soprano Angel Blue, Mezzo-soprano Milena Kitic and Baritone Rod Gilfry have also generously given awards in their names.
We invite you to make a donation in any amount to help support numerous talented young classical singers who are deserving of funds to further their studies and careers in opera. We thank you for your consideration and support!
