51 Singers Audition for Capitol City 
Opera Company on April 26-28

Fifty-one singers auditioned recently for Capitol City Opera Company during the two weeknights and the daytime Saturday audition period of April 26-28. Each individual audition lasted 10 minutes during which the singer presented two pieces of music, one in English and one in a foreign language. 

The auditions were casting for the company's upcoming events including main stage productions, touring education shows, monthly Dinner and a Diva performances, and the company's annual On the Light Side fundraiser on Friday and Saturday, July 27-28, 2018.

Commenting on the auditions, artistic director emeritus and Capitol City Opera founder Donna Angel said, "We heard a lot of wonderful talent during the auditions. Atlanta is well served with the talent we have in this market. But I do have a growing concern that our profession needs to bring more males into opera. We need to actively encourage young tenors and baritones to seriously consider opera as a performance opportunity," she added. 

The Company's artistic director Michael Nutter said, "Every year we hear the talent that Atlanta has to offer. Every year that talent pool just gets better and better. We are always commenting that we need to do more opera so we can give this wonderful group of artists opportunities to share that talent with our audiences." 

Music director Catherine Giel noted that this year's auditions also attracted singers from throughout the Southeast. "We believe this was the strongest group of auditioners we may have ever had," she said.
