|Since 2012, Northern Lights has been honored to be one of the official overseas partners to the Osaka International Music Competition.
Held yearly since 2000, the Osaka competition seeks to find young artists from around the world and to assist them in competing in an international setting.
As one of only two partners in the United States, Northern Lights conducts adjudicated semi-final auditions during the festival, with cash awards towards travel expenses to the finals in Osaka and Kobe, Japan.
During the past four years, Northern Lights audition winners have gone on to win major awards at the competition finals.
|Our 2014 festival included a full-length production of Bizet's Carmen, as well as a revival of Benjamin Britten's church opera Noyes Fludde.
