VOCAL | Classical Idol 

If you've ever been frustrated with televised singing competitions — inconsistent vocal performances, musically illiterate judges, and all — don't worry. This Saturday, the Rochester Oratorio Society will host the finals of its 11th annual Classical Idol competition at Temple B'rith Kodesh. In search of the next crop of up-and-coming opera singers, art song recitalists, and concert soloists, the Oratorio Society has assembled an esteemed panel of judges, including professional opera singers Jonathan Beyer, Constance Fee, and Erie Mills, as well as opera conductor Douglas Kinney Frost and ROS Artistic Director Eric Townell. The gala event — which includes a wine and cheese tasting, silent auction, and dessert — will be emceed by Classical 91.5 Music Director Julia Figueras.

Rochester Oratorio Society will present the Classical Idol finals on Saturday, April 8, at Temple B'rith Kodesh, 2131 Elmwood Avenue. The wine and cheese tasting and silent auction begin at 7 p.m.; competition begins at 7:30 p.m. $75. 473-2234; rossings.org.
