We are thrilled to announce the creation of the Marni Nixon International
Vocal Competition Viva Voce Inc., a 501 (c) n3 non-profit Organization,
the purpose of which is to sponsor the professional development
and advancement of all talented classical and musical theater
vocalists pursuing a career in the performing arts. It is a great
passion of mine to give back to the community in which I have
seen many successful years of my own career, and lead a new generation
of singers passionately into the future.
Together with my friend and colleague, Stephen Crawford, the
Marni Nixon International Vocal Competition hosted its first annual
gala in Phoenix, Arizona in February, and is now offering its
first online classical art song competition from March 15
April 30, 2016. Next, we plan to host a live audition competition
in Fall 2016 opera only in Phoenix. And finally,
we plan to expand our competition to include musical theater and
contemporary commercial music in 2017. Please click

Welcome to our new managing director, Noelle Karnolt. Noelle
will be developing and overseeing all fundraising activities related
to the competition, as well as managing the day-to-day operations.
We are currently seeking two administrative volunteers; if you
are interested and able, please contact Noelle at firstname.lastname@example.org
for further information.
Lastly, this endeavor can only be successful insofar as we are
able to establish a generous, consistent flow of donated funds.
If you are able, please consider adding the Marni Nixon International
Competition to your list of annual charitable giving. You may
arrange a donation through Noelle, or through our website.
