About the series

Young Singers Project

With the Young Singers Project the Salzburg Festival has created a high-powered platform for the promotion of young singers, which can look back on many successful years and has been supported for several years by the Kühne Foundation who is also a main sponsor of the Salzburg Festival.

Young singers are selected through international auditions and thanks to the scholarship the participants receive advanced training during the Festival, which does not only include musical education and repertoire expansion, but also staging, language coaching, Lied interpretation as well as the opportunity to work with Festival artists and to attend rehearsals. The master classes and the clear practical connection with the Festival make the YSP an educational programme that has become an international benchmark and model.

The participants of the Young Singers Project will perform in the opera for children Der Teufel mit den drei goldenen Haaren by Stefan Johannes Hanke and will also appear in opera productions during the 2022 season of the Salzburg Festival. In a final concert on 27 August they present themselves to the public.
