How does it work?
Each year, the World Youth Choir (WYC) welcomes about 80 singers to participate in the Summer Session, half alumni half new singers. New singers must pass a live audition in their home country and are selected in a 2-step selection process:
Step 1: National Selection (January / February) National juries select 12 candidates per country through live auditions and send their audition material to an international jury.
Step 2: International Selection (March) The international jury selects the final candidates based on the audition material Read more about:
