2019-2020 Competition

Signature Symphony is excited to announce our 3rd annual Tulsa Sings! vocal talent competition to shine the spotlight again on yet undiscovered talent.

The Tulsa Sings! Competition welcomes anyone with ties to Tulsa to compete for the opportunity to perform beside Scott Coulter and other Broadway stars with the orchestra at Signature Symphony’s final 2019-2020 season Pops concerts on April 3 & 4, 2020 as a finalist. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges which include Broadway star Scott Coulter.  There will be an “audience choice” award each evening with the grand prize winner announced at the end of the Saturday performance.
