For numerous decades, the Pasadena Opera Trust has funded the awards of countless young, aspiring opera singers under the auspices of the Pasadena Opera Guild. Last year marked the first year that the Trust gave the award money for the very first Vocal Competition held in Pasadena. This year marks the first year that the Trust is funding what is now the Mentoris Vocal Competition which is part of the mission of the Barbera Foundation.
At 2 pm on February 23, 2019, eight finalists will perform at Pasadena City College while competing for $20,000 in prize money.
