Below are four very talented young singers who were invited to the Concurso. Although they did not compete, we believe these young talented singers have a special talent that deserves encouragement. They observed all coachings and master classes, and had two opportunities to perform, once at a special event with the major donors of Opera San Miguel, and again for our audience on Concurso night during the judges’ deliberations. We know we will be hearing more from them in the future.
