2018 Vocal Competition Winners!
The staff and board of MetroWest Opera want to thank all of the competitors for our 2018 Vocal Competition. We had a large number of applicants, and so many wonderful singers. The decision to award the winners, much less determine the Final round competitors, was an extremely hard task. We want to thank our judges: Educator and Coach, Jean Anderson-Collier; Renowned Baritone, David Kravitz; and Singer Agent from NYC, Justin Werner for their time, expertise, and passion for the art of singing. Look below to view the winners of our 2018 Vocal Competition!
