The auditions will start at 11:00am until about 4:00pm, with a one hour intermission. You are welcome to come and listen at any time on Sunday.

The Competition honors the great Polish soprano Marcella Kochanska Sembrich, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1883. After an enormously successful career, the popular singer founded the vocal programs at both the Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute. Previous winners of the competition include Barbara Hendricks and Jan Opalach.

This year the competition has turned out to be very successful, considering that the number of contestants have greatly increased and that we have now also attracted a number of International contestants from Japan, China, South Korea, France, Canada, Puerto Rico and Poland. The auditions will start starting at 11:00am until about 4:00pm followed by reception co-sponsored by the Division of Russian and Slavic Studies at Hunter College.
