Convention Schedule

Come for the Competition, but stay for the 4 days of Convention Classes for emerging profeesion, university, and high school aged singers. Classes are presented by invited masters, schools, and exhibitors.

Convention Classes are free for CS Vocal Competition participants and no registration is required. Non competition participants can register for the Convention Class Pass for $125 and accompanying parents and teachers can register for the +1 Pass for $35. View Pass Options

Each Convention Class Pass holder can sign up to sing in one masterclass by visiting the presenter's table at the Expo. To sing in more than one class, volunteer at the beginning of the class. Presenters are asked to give priority to singers who haven't yet sung. For Thursday and Friday morning classes, sign up lists will be at the Convention Registration Desk.

Each class has been labeled as High School, University, or Emerging Pro only to help you choose the class that is right for you. You can attend any class on the schedule.

  High School       University       Emerging Professional
