Vocal Scholarship

Details for the 2023 Vocal Scholarship Competition and Awards Dinner will be posted when they become available.

Our 47th Annual Italian Cultural Center’s Vocal Scholarship Competition was founded by the late Josephine L. LiPuma, a noteworthy operatic talent and Italian Cultural Center Volunteer. The competition took place on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at the Italian Cultural Center, located at 1621 N. 39th, Stone Park, IL 60165. We awarded $5,500.00 in scholarships this year to four talented winners. 

The scholarship recipients showcased their talents at an incredible concert and dinner on Sunday, November 13th at Casa Italia.
