THE 2015 HAL LEONARD VOCAL COMPETITION

Hal Leonard Corporation, the world's largest print music publisher and the world leader in vocal music, sponsors the exciting and innovative concept of a serious music competition for voice students comprised entirely of YouTube video entries. We believe this to be the first legitimate vocal competition to be held entirely on the Internet.

We thank all those singers who entered, their teachers and parents, and all the hard-woking accompanists.

Judging has been concluded for the 2014 competition. Congratulations to the prize winners! Their videos appear below.
