Young Artists Awards

eVoco Young Artist Awards

eVoco is proud to present this opportunity for high school singers in conjunction with its spring recital each year. This year five to eight high school singers will be chosen to advance to the live component and asked to perform their competition solo on the eVoco Voice Recital, Saturday, May 18th at 7:00pm in the Shapiro Family Hall recital space at Hofstra University. After the live performances three high school singers will be chosen to receive scholarships to be used to further their musical pursuits, in the following categories:

  • 1st prize: $500 
  • 2nd prize: $250
  • 3rd prize: $125

Winners will also have their names featured on the eVoco website.

To be considered for this prize, you must be available to perform at the May 18th recital. An accompanist will be provided for you at the recital, if needed.

Your YouTube link should lead us to a video recording of your performance of a single song (art song, aria, musical theater piece, etc.) with piano accompaniment. Diverse styles of music are encouraged. Please keep video submissions under seven minutes.

Once you submit the form, you will be taken to our payment page where you may pay the $25 application fee either through PayPal or by Credit Card. You are confirmed as an applicant when both your application fee and email with link are electronic registration form have been received. The deadline for applications is Monday, April 22nd, 2024. Singers chosen to advance to the next round will be notified by April 30th, 2024 via personal email. Please keep an eye out on your spam folder.
