2013 - Ending with a Bang

What a remarkable year 2013 was - our first full year of operation. With all the enthusiasm, energy, financial support and participation of so many, the dream of a vocal competition is closer to reality. Some of the highlights of the past year are:

  • Logo finalized with the wonderful work of designer Peter Benson
  • Competition venue finalized after much searching & discussion
  • Website finalized & put up in May, designed by 18 East
  • Terrific 1st Founders Event in May at Piedmont Piano Company
  • IRS approval of our 501 (c) (3) status in late June
  • 1st application deadline yielded 93 submissions from singers
  • Attained 99 new donors
  • And, in a final twelve hour push on December 31 2013, we exceeded our fundraising goal of $30,000!

Many, many thanks to our marvelous donors, volunteers and board of directors for this exciting year, we are looking ahead to a Happy 2014!
