2016 Vocal Competition Winners!

The staff and board of MetroWest Opera want to thank all of the competitors for our 2016 Vocal Competition, in both the High School Division and Young Artist Division.  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: World-Renowned Soprano, Barbara Quntiliani; Conductor, Michael Sakir; and Opera Stage Director, Eve Summer; for their time, expertise, and passion for the art of singing.  Look below to view the winners of our 2016 Vocal Competition!
