Saturday, March 25, 2023

2023 Heafner WilliamsThe Heafner Williams Vocal Competition, one of only three such competitions in the southeast, will be held at the Cultural Center on March 25 (semi-finals) and March 26 (finals).

The Heafner/Williams Vocal Competition highlights emerging theatrical vocal talent to encourage the theatrical vocal arts. Carolyn Heafner & Bob Williams are internationally accomplished opera singers and Lincolnton residents, who give back to their hometown and the arts by hosting this annual vocal competition for singers ages 18-35 who are residents of or enrolled in a school in NC, SC, or VA. With prize packages up to $2,500, this is an opportunity for singers to compete and refine their craft. Each vocalist will feature 3 of 5 repertoire categories: Musical Theater, Opera, Operetta, Oratorio, & Classical Song.

According to Carolyn, "We have both been greatly assisted in our careers by having won many contests and scholarships. We truly understand how these encouragements not only help financially but give a boost to the spirit to know that one’s talent is appreciated and awarded."
