to MICHIGAN DISTRICT
GREAT LAKES REGION
The Michigan District  - Metropolitan Opera Laffont Competition occurs yearly. 
 
The Great Lakes Regional competition is held in the winter rotating between the Buffalo/Toronto, Pittsburg, or Michigan Districts.
 
Our district competitions pay tribute to the legacy of the late Dr. David DiChiera, the founder of Michigan Opera Theater. In his honor, an additional award is presented to an outstanding opera singer.
