This event has passed.


AVA’s award-winning Resident Artists, accompanied by AVA Master Vocal Coach Danielle Orlando, sing a single aria in competition with each other for prizes awarded by a professional panel of judges and by the audience yourselves! Previous Giargiari winners include international opera stars Angela Meade, Richard Troxell, Joyce El-Khoury, Stephen Costello, James Valenti and Latonia Moore, among others.

Last season, rising third-year soprano Vanessa Vasquez took the James Parkinson Opera Foundation First Prize, the Walter and Alice Strine, Esqs., Audience Prize and the WRTI Listener’s Choice Prize - becoming just the fourth singer in 12 years to win all three awards (and just the third to win them all in the same year) joining Jeffrey Halili (2004), Stephen Costello (2005) and Angela Meade (2006/2007).
