For our final event of the year, we will, once again, host a competition for aspiring vocal soloists. Following a preliminary round of recorded solo submissions, highly qualified finalists will be selected and invited to travel to Colorado and participate in two full days of masterclasses, rehearsals, and a final concert. The concert will feature one of Bach’s lesser-known works, Mass in G Minor, BWV 235, as well as several of Bach’s beloved arias from other cantatas and large works. One First Prize Winner and one Runner-Up will be selected at the conclusion of the concert. They will receive cash prizes, and each will have an opportunity to perform with CBE in future seasons at the discretion of the Artistic Director. We invite you to join us for this special concert, followed by a reception to show appreciation for our loyal supporters.
