The Metropolitan Opera National Council continues to search for the best young vocal talent. These auditions are an excellent way for singers to be heard by representatives of the Metropolitan Opera and other professionals attending the audition. The value of these auditions goes far beyond the prize money. It is an opportunity for talent recognition, individual advancement, and career advisement.

The National Council sponsors auditions in forty-one Districts and twelve Regions throughout the United States, and Canada. The success of our Arizona auditions program is due largely to the cooperation of voice teachers, opera directors, directors of music schools, and other music organizations bringing the program to the attention of talented young singers.
