12th Annual Hal Leonard Vocal Competition Now Open

Christian Wissmuller • News • October 8, 2021
Hal Leonard, the world leader in vocal music, has announced the 2022 Hal Leonard Vocal Competition for young classical and theatre singers, comprised entirely of YouTube video submissions. Singers can compete in two divisions: Art Song and Musical Theatre, with four age categories for each, children through college undergraduates. Hal Leonard offers more than $10,000 in cash prizes and gift certificates to encourage singers to build a music library for their studies.
There is no entry fee or travel cost to an audition site for the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition, unlike almost every other music competition. Singers from all over the U.S. and Canada can compete with others in their age group and view videos online. One of the aims of the competition is for singers to hear other singers of similar age and learn from one another. Another aim of the competition is to recognize the good work of the voice teachers who fostered these young talented performers. Playlists of results in each category may be viewed on the Hal Leonard Vocal YouTube channel.
The rules, required repertoire, and prizes, as well as a complete listing of winners and top placing videos for 2021 – and previous years – may be found at halleonard.com/vocalcomp. 2022 entries must be submitted before February 2, 2022.
