The 39 MONC Districts
are organized into 12 regions continent-wide. The Mexico District is part of the MONC Gulf Coast Region
, and winners in the Mexico District advance next to the auditions of that region, held annually in New Orleans, LA. Our five 2018 winners competed there, with soprano Yunuet Laguna
taking second place, and three other Mexican singers (tenor Efrain Corralejo
, soprano Denis Velez
and countertenor Gamaliel Reynoso
) receiving honorable mention recognition. When our four 2019 winners competed there in January, 2020, soprano Denis Velez
was named first prize winner, and soprano Jennifer Mariel Velasco
received third prize.
Our 2020 winners competed virtually in February, 2021, with soprano Jennifer Mariel
taking first prize, and sopranos Sofia Garza
and Luisa Mordel
receiving honorable mention recognition.
