The Competition

Be a part of a competiton designed to launch operatic careers...

Since its debut in 1985, the McCammon Voice Competition has grown into one of the world's most important operatic events. Every two years the contest showcases the most compelling young singers of our time. The 2016 competition will be held March 17-19, 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas.

McCammon winners are immediately catapulted into the operatic "big time," and now enjoy stellar careers with major opera companies around the world, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera and Opera National de Paris. We even boast 2011 Grammy Award winner, Richard Paul Fink, and 2012 Grammy nominee, Ava Pine, as past McCammon winners. In addition to prize money, many McCammon competitors are also offered roles right here at home with the acclaimed Fort Worth Opera Festival.
