Young Singers Project

Due to the current situation, the 2020 Young Singers Project had to be postponed to 2021. The participants of the Young Singers Project will again participate in concerts and in productions for the 2021 Festival season.

Young Singers Project

Supported by KÜHNE-STIFTUNG

With the Young Singers Project the Salzburg Festival has created a high-powered platform for the promotion of young singers, which in 2019 can look back on eleven successful years.

Young singers are selected through international auditions, and participants of the scholarship receive the opportunity to work with Festival artists. The curriculum does not only include musical education and repertoire expansion, but also staged rehearsals, language coaching and 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 perform in the world premiere of the opera for children Vom Stern, der nicht leuchten konnte by Elisabeth Naske and Ela Baumann and also appear in the YCA concerts as well as in further Festival productions during the 2020 season.
In a final concert they present themselves to the public.
