Apply now for the Schmidt Vocal Competition in Minnesota! One of sixteen competitions across the country, Schmidt Vocal Arts brings a competition for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to the University of Minnesota on Saturday, April 27. Singers must prepare three memorized selections, one of which can be a musical theater piece.
Applications are due on April 20 and can be found at www.schmidtcompetition.org.
During the competition day, there are two rounds of competition plus a master class with our adjudicators. Singers are eligible for cash awards ($2500 for first, $2000 for second, $1500 for third, plus awards for finalists/encouragement) and scholarships to the Schmidt Vocal Institute and the University of Minnesota. Schmidt Vocal Arts will also be offering need-based financial aid to winners of the competition if they wish to pursue a vocal music degree at the university level.
