On May 18th of 2019, we were thrilled to meet and greet a wonderful group of 35 gifted singers, all well prepared to sing for our judges. Some we already knew, however, the majority were new to us.

On Saturday, after the last singer had performed for our judges, they adjourned to discuss every aria and singer they enjoyed hearing. Their decision was to advance these 10 gifted singers to the Final round and Awards Program, which took place on the following day, Sunday, May 19th.

We are always excited to invite every semi-finalist to the Awards Program to support their colleagues with their votes as audience members.

The 2019 Finalists were:

Ekaterina Kim,     Soprano
Hao Hu,     Tenor
Jaeyeon Kim,     Soprano
Mariya Kangaskaya,     Mezzo
Brandon Scott Russell,     Tenor
Bronwyn White,     Soprano
Hyung Joo Eom,    Baritone
Yi Wang,    Soprano
Jason JaeHyuk Choi,     Tenor
