2014 Quest for the Best Announced:
AUDIENCE TO JUDGE UA STUDENT SINGERS
Think you're a good judge of vocal talent? Here's an opportunity to test your ears against a few hundred fellow listeners while enjoying operatic arias sung by the best of southern Arizona's voice students.
The event is the eleventh annual Quest for the Best vocal competition and recital, to be held at Holsclaw Hall, in the Music Building on the UA campus, Saturday, March 29, 2014, at 1:00 p.m.
UA voice students will vie for cash prizes, in separate graduate and undergraduate categories. The vote of the audience, by written ballot, will determine the winners. While ballots are counted, the Opera Guild of Southern Arizona hosts a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception where the audience can chat with the singers and faculty.
To enter the competition students must be nominated by their professors. Last year, 14 students competed and $7500 was awarded. The event is presented to the community by the the Opera Guild of Southern Arizona, in cooperation with the University of Arizona's School of Music.
Admission to Quest for the Best is $50, partially tax-deductible; student and Fine Arts faculty admission is $20. Free parking and shuttle service are available at the Park Avenue Garage; it is a short walk through the underpass below Speedway Blvd. to Holsclaw Hall.
