You asked for it, the PVInvitational is back again and this year it is bigger and better than before. We have expanded the PVInvitational to 3 days and now in addition to regional opera companies, we have invited symphony, choral and concert presenters to hear our singers. 

Friday night will be the night to sing for symphony, choral and concert presenters. Saturday and Sunday will be auditions for the opera companies. Singers may elect to sing for one or both auditions. 

  • Concert Audition ONLY (Fri PM) - $150  
  • Opera Audition ONLY (Saturday OR Sunday) - $250

Important Information Regarding the PVInvitational:

Singers MUST pay via PayPal. Singers who do not pay by their assigned invoice deadline will forfeit their registration. 

Waitlist: Once an audition is sold out, singers will be placed on a first come, first served waiting list. If an audition spot becomes available, waitlisted singers will be notified and invoiced with 48 hours to pay for their audition and confirm their participation. Singers who do not pay their invoice by their deadline will forfeit their spot, and the next singer on the wait list will be offered the audition.  The first 5 singers on the waitlist will be notified of their position on the waitlist so they may make plans accordingly as the audition weekend approaches.

Singers who cancel their registration for the PVInvitational before May 25 will receive a partial refund. No refunds will be given after May 25 unless a replacement singer is confirmed and registered. (Any refunds will be less the cost of any associated transaction fees as assessed via PayPal)
