Upper Midwest Region and Minnesota District Auditions Supporters

The Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions are made possible through your generous donations to the Minnesota District and the Upper Midwest Region Auditions. Your donations cover expenses to hold the local auditions: monetary awards to support Audition winners, accompanist fees, hall rental, and administrative and judges’ expenses. We encourage you to donate today and also consider a planned gift to support opera in the future. We thank the following individuals, organizations and our sponsors for their contributions:
