      Meet the Concurso San Miguel XI Finalists

To all the singers who traveled to San Miguel de Allende to sing for our contest, I want to extend my thanks and admiration. Without question this was the most talented and skilled group of singers we have ever auditioned. Because of that, you have also given us the most difficult decisions in the 10 year history of Concurso San Miguel. I extend special thanks to Charles Oppenheim for is invaluable assistance in the auditions and decision-making process. Thanks also to Mario Alberto Hernández for his skill and professionalism at the piano. The choices that we have made bring us both joy and regret: joy at the knowledge that this year’s Concurso has the potential to be our best ever; regret for all of the truly gifted singers whom we could not include. I salute you all from the bottom of my heart for your courage, dedication and passion for your art. I encourage each of you who were not accepted for the final round to sing for me again next year.

These are singers who, because of age or other circumstances, we do not want to immerse in the rigors of our competition. Nevertheless we feel they have significant potential deserving of encouragement. They are invited to attend all coachings and master classes, and will sing twice during Concurso week: at a special dinner for donors, and for the Concurso audience while the jury deliberates.
