Lenya Competition News
Out of 230 contestants from 12 countries, seven outstanding singer-actors rose to the top to win prizes in the 2010 Lotte Lenya Competition. The First Prize of $15,000 went to Rebekah Camm, soprano, of Chicago. Camm made her operatic debut as Micaëla in Carmen with the Houston Grand Opera in 2005, and in October will perform the role of Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro at the Los Angeles Opera, conducted by Plácido Domingo.
Judges Timothy Nolen, Lisa Vroman and Rob Berman chose to forgo the Third Prize and instead awarded Second Prizes of $9,000 each to two exceptionally talented but very different performers: David Arnsperger, baritone, of Berlin, and Margaret Gawrysiak, mezzo-soprano, of New York. Arnsperger has won First Prize in Germany’s National Singing Competition (in the Musicals category), and Gawrysiak has performed with the Seattle Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, and the San Francisco Opera’s Merola Program.
