Opera Omaha Guild awards Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions scholarship

Saturday, January 14 in the O’Donnell Auditorium of Nebraska Wesleyan University, fifteen young singers competed in the Nebraska District of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.  The singers were vying for scholarships and the opportunity to advance to the Council’s Upper Midwest Region Finals in Minneapolis next month.
Opera Omaha Guild President Sheila McNeill was on hand to award one talented singer, tenor Adam Fieldson, the Opera Omaha Guild’s Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions scholarship.  This $600 scholarship comes with an invitation for the winner to perform at future Opera Omaha Guild events.  There was a strong showing from Opera Omaha at the event. Joining Guild President Sheila McNeill was a past Guild President Gloria Dunbar, Guild member Kate Morris, Board Chairman John Newman, Advisory Board member Don Burt, and General Director Roger Weitz.  
This is an annual event that is free and open to the public – we hope to see you there next year!
