Opera Star Leah Hunt Partridge, who will return to the Mercer campus March 4, 7:30 p.m., for a free performance, has just achieved another milestone in her up-and-coming career.
She won the Southeastern Regional of the Metropolitan Opera audition finals. The competition was held Feb. 22 at Spivey Hall in Atlanta. Hunt was selected as one of 15 national finalists and will now compete on the Metropolitan Opera stage in the Metropolitan Opera National Council semi-finals March 11 in New York.
One of the purposes of the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions program is to identify new talent for the Metropolitan Opera.
