This fall, for the first time, Juneau Lyric Opera will hold a special fundraiser. Called "Who's Your Diva?" the event will showcase 10 of Juneau's best-known voices, who will compete for the chance to be named Juneau's official diva. Each competitor will perform two songs, and then community members will vote for their choice. Each week through the month of August, the Empire will present brief Q&As with each of the 10 divas in preparation for the event, scheduled for Sept. 10.
