About Tulsa Sings!
Tulsa Sings! is a vocal competition embedded in Signature Symphony at TCC. Each year finalists are selected to work with New York City-based vocalist and concert performer, Scott Coulter, and perform on stage with the professional orchestra.
The value of the coaching and mentoring by an experienced performer with each finalist has been dubbed priceless by previous participants. Coulter works with each finalist to help elevate their performance. They learn valuable vocal techniques and artistic expression to help expand their performance range.
The Tulsa Sings! Grand Prize Winner is selected by a panel of judges and given the opportunity to be the featured or guest vocalist in a future Signature Symphony concert. The Tulsa Sings! Audience Favorite is determined by audience votes and invited to perform at a future Signature Symphony concert.
Previous Tulsa Sings! winners have returned to the Signature Symphony stage for the annual Christmas in Tulsa” and “4th on the 3rd” concert traditions, as well as performed alongside LaKisha Jones, a finalist from the sixth season of “American Idol”.
