Today and tomorrow the Metropolitan Opera will be having their Eastern District National Council Auditions right here at Columbia. ¬†Singers are competing for an opportunity in the final round to sing onstage at the Met, where tickets run up to $80, and winners get a sizable chunk of money and press. ¬†Most winners wind up at huge opera houses all over the world–Renee Fleming, for instance, was an audition winner. ¬†Today and tomorrow you can stop by for however long you want to hear competitors sing an aria or two. ¬†It’s basically a really good concert.

Singers will be singing today from noon to 7 pm and tomorrow from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm in Casa Italiana.  Entrance is free, though there is a suggested donation.  Snacks and refreshments will be served tonight.
