Join us as junior vocalists compete for the Mel and Jena Hakola Prize for Academic and Vocal Excellence, an endowed BW scholarship. The Prize is awarded by outside judges of the competition to a Conservatory of Music vocal major who demonstrates excellence and promise. Mel Hakola was a distinguished voice teacher at BW for 38 years prior to his retirement. The Mel and Jena Hakola Prize for Academic and Vocal Excellence was created to encourage and reward voice students who demonstrate exceptional vocal, musical, intellectual and creative talents. It also acknowledges students who have the potential to make a significant contribution to music performance. The purpose of the prize is to promote and recognize a high standard of academic and musical excellence among voice students at BW.
