The Masterwork Music and Art Foundation is pleased to offer a $10,000 Vocal Competition Award to an emerging  artist committed to "excellence in the arts." 

Emerging Artists are defined as those, of any age, who have mastered the basic techniques of their art form and are in the early years of launching a professional career. Emerging artists have created and publicly presented a modest body of  work and are ready for the next steps in their artistic development.

 

About the Competition

From Monday, January 13 through midnight Monday, March 2, we'll be accepting applications for this award online and via mail at our P.O. Box. Each prospective awardee is asked to submit a fifteen minute video, an essay, a resume and two letters of recommendation.

 

Specific Application Criteria

While this award is not restricted to classical vocalists, each application will be evaluated on the following:

 

1.) Repertoire -- diversity of style, depth and quality of repertoire, diversity of language (if applicable) and vocal range

 

2.) Vocal Production -- consistency of sound throughout the range, vocal tone quality, phrasing and dynamics, consistency of pitch control and placement

 

3.) Interpretation -- style consistent with the musical period, clarity of diction (including foreign languages), feeling and understanding of the text, body language and performance confidence

All entries will be adjudicated by a panel of eleven judges, as well as the Board of the Masterwork Music and Art Foundation. On April 15, the competition finalists will be notified. As a requirement of this award, each finalist will be asked to perform in a benefit concert for the Foundation on Sunday, May 3 in Madison, New Jersey before the final award is determined. Room, board and travel for the benefit performance will be covered by the Foundation. An accompanist will be provided, as well.

 

For each applicant, a $30 processing fee must be mailed to:

The Masterwork Music and Art Foundation

P.O. Box 1116

Madison, NJ 07940
