Event Description


The Jessie Kneisel Lieder Competition honors the memory of Eastman’s beloved German professor, Jessie Kneisel, and is made possible through the extraordinary generosity of Eastman alumnus George McWhorter. The competition is held annually in May with the preliminary round in March. The preliminary round is judged by the entire Voice and Opera faculty, while the finals are judged by a invited distinguished guest. Such guests in recent years have included: Benita Valente, Brian Zieger, Tom Muraco, James Courtney, and Haken Hagegard.
