Young Singers Tread the Red Carpet at MIDEM in Cannes

posted in: Concert

( 4 Feb 2013 ) For the first time since the founding of the Salzburg Festival’s Young Singers Project six years ago, four of its young singers performed for the international audience of the world’s largest music trade-fair, midem, in Cannes. The Hungarian soprano Maria Celeng, the Italian mezzo-soprano Benedetta Mazzucato, the Austrian tenor Clemens Kerschbaumer and the Ukrainian baritone Yiuri Samoilov took their audience by storm during a recital in Cannes in the South of France, performing a total of seventeen arias by Handel, Hasse, Mozart, Mascagni, Massenet, Bizet, Rossini, Tchaikovsky, Britten and Verdi.

Young Singers Project

With the Young Singers Project, the Salzburg Festival created a high-carat platform in 2008 to support rising young vocal artists. At international auditions, young vocalists are selected for the Young Singers Project; they subsequently get to work with Festival artists as part of their scholarship. Their tuition includes not only musical aspects, but also scenic rehearsals, language coaching and repertoire expansion. These encounters and the practical work at the Festival make YSP a professional education project internationally regarded as a benchmark. Members of the Young Singers Project are responsible for the performances of “Wir spielen eine Oper!”, Die Zauberflöte for Children as well as Die Entführung aus dem Serail for Children (please see the folder on Children’s and Youth Programmes); they also appear in further productions of the 2013 Festival season. There will also be public master classes led by major Festival artists. In a final concert, which forms part of the Serenades in the Residenz courtyard, the young singers are introduced to their audience.
