Sponsored by The Tom Lysaught Scholarship Fund

For the 13th consecutive year, VOICExperience returns to the Midwest for the annual Opera Idol vocal competition in Chicago, Illinois. A panel of four judges will select the winner.

Five singers compete in a Master Class format with Sherrill Milnes for a full scholarship plus airfare to Savannah, Georgia, to attend the Milnes VOICE Studio in August valued at $3,000.

In addition, audience members will be given a chance to vote, selecting a “People’s Choice” award. That singer will receive a $1,000 scholarship toward the cost of participating in VOICExperience.

The Opera Idol Award is made possible by The Tom Lysaught Scholarship Fund.
The People’s Choice Award is made possible by Dr. & Mrs. Bernard Dobroski.

This event is being presented by and in cooperation
with our venue sponsors, Three Crowns Park.
