Who We Are

Metropolitan Opera National Council Upper Midwest holds Regional and District Auditions in the Upper Midwest for aspiring opera singers as part of the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Audition program.

We create the opportunity for young singers to audition in a concert hall before highly respected judges in the opera community. Through the audition process and master classes vocalists receive valuable feedback to hone their skills, refine their craft, and potentially accomplish a lifelong goal, taking their talent all the way to the Met.

Our history is filled with many stories of singers who have accomplished their dreams and continue to inspire others. Their success and our service as a resource to the opera community are made possible by the generous contributions of our donors and volunteers.

Our Mission Statement

The purpose of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions is: To discover exceptional young talent and provide a venue for young opera singers across North America at all levels of development to be heard by representatives of the Metropolitan Opera and to assist those with the greatest potential for operatic careers.
