LONJ Stars of Tomorrow Competition - Save the Date



Coming Soon

Stars of Tomorrow Competition

April 21, 2024

Stars of Tomorrow


Light Opera of NJ will host Stars of Tomorrow, a vocal competition for New Jersey High School students. The competition will consist of a qualifying round based on videos that students submit online, followed by a semifinal round on April 6 at 10 AM in South Orange, NJ and the finals on April 21 at 2 PM in Basking Ridge, NJ. Prizes are $1000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third as determined by the judges, plus $100 for the audience favorite.

Registration begins early in February on and closes on March 15, so start preparing your videos now and hold the dates open for the semifinals and finals. We will request unedited videos without any kind of audio enhancement of two songs in contrasting styles: both from the Musical Theater repertoire, both from the Operatic repertoire or one from each. They may be recorded with or without accompaniment and need not be professionally produced. A video made on a mobile phone is fine.

Tickets for non-contestants attending the final round will soon be available at $35 for the competition only and $45 for both the competition and reception with refreshments immediately after. More information will be available when the registration link opens in early February.

According to Jason Tramm, Executive Producer, "LONJ is committed to finding and presenting the best New Jersey high school-aged musical theater and opera talent. We will be eagerly looking forward to reviewing the submissions with top professionals from the vocal field!"
