First place winners who are moving on to the semi-finals are bass Daniel Miroslaw, baritone Sol Jin and baritone Theo Hoffman (a regular feature on this site!). Second place went to soprano Katrina Galka, while bass Joshua Arky walked away with the Rohatyn Great Promise Award. Encouragement Awards were presented to sopranos Alaysha Fox and Anna Dugan.

The regional semi-finals will be held on March 6 from noon-5 PM followed by the Grand Finals on March 13 from 3-6 PM. The Grand Finals will be open to the public and tickets will be available online once they are made available.

Theo Hoffman sings "Dormo ancora" from Monteverdi's Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria

Joshua Arky will perform in Beethoven's 9th Symphony on April 16th with the Binghampton Symphony and the Sargeant in Gilbert & Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance with Opera Louisiane on May 14 & 15.

This season, Theo Hoffman made his debut with Atlanta Opera as Schaunard in Puccini's La bohème and is returning to the Opera Theatre of St. Louis in 2017 where he previously covered Papageno in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte. This season he will sing Papagano at Juilliard from April 19-23.

Daniel Mirosław is joining the Oper Frankfurt’s ensemble for their upcoming season.
