U.W. Green Bay Hosts International Voice Competition

By NBC26 Staff. CREATED Oct 1, 2013

GREEN BAY, WI— UW-Green Bay served as the host for the preliminary and semi-final rounds of the Czech and Slovak Voice International Music Competition.

The prestigious event seeks to promote vocal access for young singers in North America.

“It's wonderful to be able to disseminate some of the repertoire now in 2013, and hopefully it catches on more and people become interested in it and see the beauty of what these countries have to offer,” said singer Olivia Betzen.

This was the sixth year UW-Green Bay has hosted the early rounds of the competition.
