Congratulations to all of our Resident Artists who competed in this year’s Giargiari Bel Canto Competition!

Let your voice be heard! The Academy of Vocal Arts’ Giargiari Bel Canto Competition has seen such international opera stars as Angela Meade, Stephen Costello, Ruth Ann Swenson and Ailyn Pérez win prizes over its 39 year history. AVA’s Resident Artists each sing an aria in competition for prizes, including one voted on by the audience!
