Applications invited for the 2022 Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg competition

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

It was inevitable, I suppose, that  singing competition launched in 2016 by Staatstheater Nürnberg would be called Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg! Running every two years, 2022 will see the third edition of the competition and applications are now open with an international jury to be chaired by the distinguished tenor Siegfried Jerusalem.

The focus of the 2022 competition is on the lower vocal ranges, with a special prize to be awarded for the lower vocal ranges Alto and Bass, as well as the Young Artist Prize. Singers that already have some professional experience or are enrolled students at a conservatoire are invited to apply by 31 January 2022.

In previous competitions, more than 700 singers applied and over half were heard live in preliminary rounds. For 2022, procedures will be somewhat different, with preliminary rounds being done via submitted recordings. The final three rounds of the competition (preliminary round, semi-final, final) will take place in July 2022 in Nuremberg. Winners will perform at the Meistersinger Open-Air concert in Nuremberg’s Hauptmarkt square on the 28 July 2022. 

Full details from the competition website.
