Each fall, we welcome back our audiences with the Giargiari Bel Canto Competition. It feels fitting to begin the season in such a way, as it’s a moment for our artists to become re-acquainted with you, the audience, and you with them.
At this Friday’s competition, we invite you to cast your vote after hearing our young artists sing not one, but two contrasting arias. That’s right – you will hear twelve of our Resident Artists sing two arias.
Giargiari music director and pianist Danielle Orlando shares the process behind this new format:
“This year, we’re excited to try something new with the Giargiari Competition. The artistic process for this kind of preparation has been intense and creative and also in line with many other international singing competitions. When creating the format for this year’s Giargiari Competition, we kept our audience in mind hoping to provide a deeper look into each artist’s vocalism and personality by performing a second aria.”
