Our Texoma NATSAA prelims (October 30 and 31) and regional finals (Nov 2) take place in odd-numbered years instead of the longstanding Edward Baird Singer of the Year (EBSOTY) competition. Singing times are assigned randomly according to competition rules, but we will try to schedule as many singers for Wednesday as time allows.
Despite the change in name, we will still award the same prize money for our regional finals as we do for EBSOTY: $1000 for First Place, $500 for Second Place, and $250 for Third Place. Singers can register for NATSAA: https://www.nats.org/nats-artist-awards.html. Singers may not apply through the Texoma website. The deadline for this application is September 9th, and registration is through the preceding link and not this website.
EBSOTY will return in 2020!
