Central Region Finals

The annual finals concert brings together the winning singers from each of the Central Region's three districts - Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky. These singers will present a formal auditions concert, from which one or more national semi-finalist will be chosen. Tickets will be sold in advance or at the door prior to the concert. Check back for an updated link to purchase tickets.

After the concert, the Central Region Council will be hosting a reception. Concert only tickets as well as Gala tickets for both the concert and reception afterwards will be available soon.

The Region Finals Auditions are presided over by three distinguished judges whose backgrounds and current work create the backbone of the opera world with the US and abroad. The Central Region judging panel will be announced soon
