"We are proud to offer, as part of our Eisteddfod competitions at the North American Festival of Wales (NAFOW) , the David G. Morris Memorial Competition for Solo Voice.  This is our signature competition, with the opportunity to win a cash scholarship ($3,500 US) for travel to compete in the 2016 National Eisteddfod of Wales.
This year’s David Morris Competition will be held Saturday, September 5, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.  It is open to singers (residents of the Americas) with some professional training, but whose income is derived only partially from performing.  Several David Morris winners have gone on to great success in competing in Wales, including a first-place winner at the 2012 National Eisteddfod in Vale of Glamorgan.  More information can be found on the attached flyer.

Each competitor is required to sing two pieces from memory (contrasted selections drawn from art song, oratorio or operatic repertoire), at least one of which must be in Welsh.  (Competitors should note that participation in the National Eisteddfod of Wales will involve singing in Welsh.) 

The NAFOW Eisteddfod entry form, including further details on the David Morris competition, is available here:   Eisteddfod Entry Form . Entries must be received by August 20, 2015.  

For further information on this extraordinary opportunity, please contact us at any time (email: ; phone: 412-215-9161 )."
