On Sunday afternoon, April 27, 2014, the founding donors of JTVA gathered in the beautifully restored downtown showroom of Piedmont Piano to hear the first announcement of the 2014 Finalists. Outbursts of delighted applause and whispered "oooohs and aaaahs" accompanied the presentation of the video which  offered brief snippets of each of the competitors' singing! In addition, the asembled donors were treated to the beautiful and powerful live singing of two of the Tier II Finalists, Stefan Miller and Alexander Taite.
