People seeking employment should not be subjected to predatory fees. The audition process for singers is loaded with fees for accompanist, wardrobe, travel, housing and worst of all application fees.
Please help us in cracking down on competitions and auditions who ask for application fees.
Singers should not pay people to listen to them. They are applying for a job.
We, the undersigned, call on Opera America to work with organizations such as YAP Tracker, Classical Singer and other audition posting sites to prohibit the advertisement of any organization that requires a singer to submit an application fee.
These fees are predatory and are not regulated. Auditions are a job interview that are the expense of the people conducting the job search, not the job seeker.
The Stop Predatory Audition Fees petition to Opera America was written by Opera Candy and is in the category Arts & Entertainment at GoPetition.
