INTERNATIONAL AUDIENCE ENGAGEMENT PRIZE

Changes within society are reflected in culture and its reception. We are convinced that the art of song is more relevant than ever in its themes, but also in its proximity and immediacy towards the public. At the same time, it is important to break new ground as an artist, re-examining the art of song as well as its audience.
