Event description
Join APO as 30 young vocalists from across the country compete for their chance to advance to the final round of the 5th Annual NextGen!

About this event

NextGen National: Finding the Voices of Tomorrow is a vocal competition created to give collegiate vocalists the opportunity to learn from industry professionals and compete for a chance to win a monetary prize and various paid performance opportunities with The American Pops Orchestra throughout their next season!

From hundreds of applicants, 30 semi-finalists were chosen to compete in the semi-final round on January 29 at 8pm, where the top 10 competitors will be selected to advance to the live final round in March 2022. Finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges and the virtual audience, who will be given the chance to vote for who they think should move to the next round.

By registering for this event, you will receive a private livestream link 24 hours before the broadcast begins. Following the semi-final livestream, viewers will receive a voting link to vote for their favorite semi-finalists.

Our judges for this round will be Aisha Jackson (Waitress, Frozen), Cory Parker (U.S. Navy Band), Brittany Renne Robinson (Metropolitan Opera Soprano), and Tara Young (Broadway Director and Choreographer). In addition to our panel of judges, our virtual audience will serve as the 5th judge by voting for your favorite singers!
