Vocal Division

Tchaikovsky Music Competition 2018 Vocal Vidision!

Since the 19th century the Western world has become acquainted with Russian music mainly through the symphonic and operatic works and songs of her leading composers. Although major opera companies along with star recitalists have begun to bring previously little-known masterpieces to public, there is still fabulously rich repertoire to be uncovered. Russian is a musical language, and poetry blended with music has always struck a responsive chord in people everywhere. 


The Tchaikovsky Music Competition (Vocal Division) will be held at the Center's Concert Hall on Sunday February 4th, 2018 starting at 12:30pm.  It is open to solo vocalists from age 12 to adults and divided into three categories: School, Young Adults (including college students), and Adults.

Contestants will sing one song composed by the Russian composer of their own selection, including Classical Russian Arias, Russian Art songs, and Russian Folk songs in classical arrangements. A panel of 3 professional vocal educators will judge performances.
