Four singers embarking on vocal performance careers perform on the Glasrud Auditorium stage in Weld Hall on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus Friday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.

Fargo-Moorhead Opera chose the four singers at national auditions that took place in New York last November. The FMO began its Young Artist Program in 2013 with the primary financial support of Gate City Bank, with additional assistance from Karen Stoker and Anda Properties.

The goal of the FMO Young Artist Program is to provide additional training and performance experience to young artists, guided by FMO’s guest artists, stage directors and the FM Opera General Director, David Hamilton. The program is the first of its kind in the region, bringing young professionals to Fargo from January through March of each year. The singers perform at schools, community events and participate in various FM Opera productions, including this spring’s world premiere production of Buried Alive & Embedded.

Performing artists are soprano Bosworth Borland, mezzo soprano Hilary Ginther, tenor Kyle Tomlin, and baritone Colin Levin. They are accompanied by Eric McEnany, the associate director and principal coach of the Young Artist Program.
