American Idol For People Who Can Actually Sing

what are stamps?

Send us a postcard if you go

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.
