The annual Competition for Colorado Singers helps young singers prepare for the challenges and competitive auditions ahead of them, as well as provides significant financial support as singers begin their operatic careers. Since inaugurating the Competition in 1984, DLOG has awarded $815,400 to over 400 top winners. The results of winning the Competition are significant with many winners successfully pursuing international and Metropolitan opera careers.
