With the Young Singers Project, the Salzburg Festival has created a high-carat platform to support rising young singers in 2008. Young singers are selected through international auditions for the Young Singers Project and work with Festival artists as part of their scholarship in Salzburg. Tuition includes not only musical aspects, but also scenic rehearsals, diction coaching and repertoire expansion. Public master classes, the participation in Festival productions of the 2013 season and the performance of a final concert make the Young Singers Project a young artist program considered an international benchmark.
