Young Singers Project
Director of YSP
Assistant: Xenia Hofmann
In 2008 the Salzburg Festival created the Young Singers Project, a high-class platform to support and nurture young vocalists. Young singers are selected through international auditions for the Young Singers Project, 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. The master classes led by renowned Festival artists are open to the public. These encounters and the clear practical connection with the Festival make the YSP an educational programme that has become an international benchmark and model.
The members of the Young Singers Project perform in the new production of the children’s version of Il barbiere di Siviglia and also appear in further Festival productions during the 2015 season. In a final concert, the participants of YSP present themselves to the public.
