Young Singers Project 2018

With the Young Singers Project, the Salzburg Festival created a high-carat
platform for the encouragement and support of young vocalists in 2008. This year, 13 young singers from 12 nations take part in the Young Singers Project. They come from Great Britain, Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, South Korea, France, Belgium, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Austria, Romania and Poland.

The director of the Young Singers Project, Evamaria Wieser, a member of numerous juries herself, selects young vocalists at international auditions who then receive the opportunity to work with Festival artists. In addition, the curriculum includes musical lessons and repertoire expansion, staged rehearsals, language coaching and song interpretation. Both master classes and the practical relevance of their work make YSP a young artist programme which is internationally considered a model.

The participants perform in the new production of the opera Die Zauberflöte für Kinder, a children’s version of Mozart’s Magic Flute, and appear in other productions of the 2018 Festival season as well. The YSP participants present themselves to the public in a final concert on 25 August 2018.

“The golden touch, or rather, the excellent ear of Evamaria Wieser and the Festival is
demonstrated by the fact that the participants of the Young Singers Project achieve
outstanding results at competitions all over the world and are engaged by the leading opera houses,” says Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler.
