PHILADELPHIA - Sept. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- AN EVENING OF VOCAL FIREWORKS AWAITS AT AVA's GIARGIARI BEL CANTO COMPETITION!

Philadelphia's own operatic American Idol returns to the Kimmel Center this October

Philadelphia, PA – The Academy of Vocal Arts' annual favorite vocal competition returns to the Kimmel Center this fall. The Giargiari Bel Canto Competition will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 7:30 PM at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts' Perelman Theater. AVA's award-winning Resident Artists each sing an aria in competition for prizes, including one voted on by the audience. An evening of vocal fireworks, lavish gowns, and competition awaits!

Giargiari has seen such international opera stars as Angela Meade, Stephen Costello, Michael Fabiano and Ailyn Pérez win prizes over its 40-year history.

The performers, as well as the repertoire, will be announced as the competition draws closer - stay tuned! Music from last year's competition included arias from Massenet's Le Cid, Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore, Verdi's Un ballo in maschera, and much more.

The evening's music director and pianist is AVA Master Vocal Coach Danielle Orlando, who is also an accompanist to many international opera singers, as well as serving as a distinguished vocal coach and artistic consultant to several prestigious organizations throughout the musical world. Ms. Orlando has been seen on Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, Live by Request on A&E and the Rosie O'Donnell Show accompanying celebrities Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bolton. She also appears in the Metropolitan Opera documentary The Audition.

AVA expresses its gratitude to Walter and Alice Strine, Esqs for sponsoring this competition again.
