Audition Now for APO'S NextGen National Competition

The NextGen competition was started to find young aspiring artists from across the US and give them the opportunity to learn more about the performance industry and perform live with an orchestra. Each year, APO offers various masterclasses and seminars to introduce and educate students to the artistic field and award them cash prizes to support their careers. With an overall mission to preserve classic American music, APO requires students perform pre-
1970 songs, and encourages participants to sing lesser-known, classic pieces that show off their vocal capabilities and connect audiences of all ages. APO is proud to not only offer monetary prizes and constructive masterclasses, but also invite winners to join them for APO shows, including recent National PBS broadcasts.
