Get set for American Traditions Vocal Competition 2022, a professional singing contest where vocalists compete for cash prizes totaling over $35,000. February 21st through the 25th, in Savannah GA.
The 29th annual American Traditions Vocal Competition (ATC) is just weeks away and excitement is building. ATC celebrates all styles of classic American music, music written by a citizen of the United States. Eligible composers include U.S. natives, dual citizens, and naturalized citizens, as long as the song was written after they were naturalized.
The annual ATC attracts talented singers from all around the country, and who can blame them? Contestants receive cash prizes, excellent exposure, and, best of all, real career opportunities.
Hopeful performers submit audition tapes and go through a rigorous application process. This helps guarantee a series of stunning performances at the competition. No cringe-worthy, early weeks of American Idol-like performances to sit through. Just well-honed, stunning vocal talent.
Contestants perform a diverse array of songs from nine different genres throughout the competition. They will announce the winners after the final round, following the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, held earlier in the week.
This year’s contestants many talented performers, including Night At The Apollo Winner, Timothy Parrott and Andrea Ross. Allison Blackwell, who has performed with the New York Philharmonic, New York Pops, and on Broadway, will also be competing. And that’s just to name a few.
Competitors aren’t the only stars to watch at the ATC.
