Three from Peabody to compete in finals of opera auditions

Three Peabody Conservatory students—Master of Music candidate Jeffrey Gates, a student of William Sharp’s; and Graduate Performance Diploma candidates Kristina Lewis and Amedee Moore, both students of Stanley Cornett’s—will compete in the Middle Atlantic Region Finals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

The event will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29, at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

Gates, Lewis and Moore were three of the five winners at the district auditions held Nov. 6 at Wolf Trap, Va.
