Click here to find further information about the participation conditions for the Master Class.
The participants are chosen from our jury from the group of final round participants.
Further, our jurors use the possibility to nominate singers from other preliminary rounds we hosted in the past years, who were recognized as very talented but maybe a little too young.
Your application for the Competition is also an application for following Master Classes, your chance for both!
Our jury recommends young singers to us, who maybe not won a prize but have all chances to develop to a great singer.
Actually it is not possible to apply without the participation in the Competition or a recommendation from a jury member from the preliminary round of NEUE STIMMEN.
