Young Singers Project

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, 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 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 performed in the new production of the opera Der Schauspieldirektor for children and also appeared in further Festival productions during the 2017 season. In a final concert, the members of the YSP presented themselves to the public.
