The Sembrich Voice Scholarship Competition of the Kosciuszko Foundation will take place in March 2014.
The Competition honors the great Polish soprano Marcella Kochanska Sembrich, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut in its brand-new building in 1883. After an enormously successful career, the popular singer founded the vocal programs at both the Juilliard School and Curtis Institute. Previous winners of the competition include Barbara Hendricks and Jan Opalach.
Cash scholarship prizes are $3000, $1500, and $1000.
