40th Annual German Lieder Competition Results

Congratulations to all of our voice students who participated in this year’s special 40th year edition of the German Lieder Competition! Our adjudicators Anne Grimm and Benjamin Butterfield praised all of the singers for their efforts and highlighted how courageous it is for someone to be able to come on stage and tell their story through song, in a language that is in some cases completely new and foreign to them.   Our sincere thanks to Anne and Benjamin for adjudicating, to Alex Chen for being our collaborative pianist for the evening, and to Jennifer Turner for all her work organizing and hosting this event.

The results from our adjudicators are as follows:

Junior Division:

1st Place – Eleonora Yeranyan
