The Kennett Symphony of Chester County hosts an annual vocal competition that allows young artists to compete for an opportunity to perform with the Kennett Symphony – Chester County’s only fully professional symphony orchestra.  The 2018 Voice Competition will be held on Saturday December 15, 2018 beginning at 12:00pm in the auditorium of Kendal at Longwood, Kennett Square, PA. The competition is open to the public, free of charge, and offers an opportunity to hear the stars of tomorrow perform.

The competition is limited to twenty singers, age 18-26 as of January 1, 2018. Competitors must perform three operatic, oratorio, or concert arias from the 18th to the 21st centuries, with at least one in English. Judges will award prizes to first, second, and third place winners ranging from one hundred to one thousand dollars, and the first-place winner will be invited to perform at a Kennett Symphony concert.

Applications are available on the Kennett Symphony website

In addition to providing a wide range of symphonic music, the Kennett Symphony maintains a strong commitment to education and outreach programs that include three Young Artist competitions, Family Concerts with Instrument Zoo, and its affiliation with the Kennett Symphony Children’s Chorus. The Young Artist Competitions provide an invaluable performance experience for aspiring musicians who have achieved a high level of proficiency.
