Registration is now open for the Ethel J. Armeling Vocal Scholarship Competition. For the past six years, the Steiner Chorale has provided an opportunity to aspiring young people by sponsoring an annual Vocal Scholarship Competition. This event draws high school-aged students from music programs from all school districts across the state of Michigan and both recognizes and financially rewards the most talented among them. Students are required to sing three selections: one American Art song, one in a foreign language and another piece of their choosing. The vocal competition is for junior and senior high school students and are critiqued by reputable judges with distinguished careers in the vocal arts. The top ten students are selected after the Preliminary Auditions and are asked to return to compete during the Finalist Gala Recital.
The registration fee is $40 and prizes will be awarded to the top three students in the competition at the Finals event on March 17th on the campus at Michigan State University.
The Chorale’s last concert of the season is sure to be a treat for the entire family. If you enjoy medieval reenactments, you will especially enjoy A Madrigal Dinner! In true medieval fashion, madrigals will perform selections while you enjoy a delicious meal! Stay tuned for dates and times.
