SINGER SELECTION

Meet the singers selected for the 2024 World Youth Choir Alumni Session

This year, we have received over 57 applications representing 37 different nationalities! After listening to the recordings and evaluating the applicants, the international jury chose 32 singers from 24 countries to be part of the World Youth Choir Alumni Session 2024.

 

The selection was made by an international jury composed by a jury representative from each of the three World Youth Choir patron organizations: Victoria Liedbergius on behalf of the European Choral Association, Burak Onur Erdem on behalf of the International Federation for Choral Music and Sasho Tatarchevski on behalf of Jeunesses Musicales International.

 

The application process was open to all World Youth Choir alumni up to 35, including the singers who were selected for the 2020 session but are now over the age limit for the regular summer session in 2024.

 

The process was conducted taking into account the artistic and musical quality of each candidate through the audition files submitted: voice range, vocal technical skills, ability to prepare a piece and voice performance throughout. Furthermore, the jury also took into consideration the complementarity of the voices of the singers selected in order to create a cohesive group in each section and for the whole choir, the number of sessions the singers already participated in the choir and, whenever possible, the diversity of countries represented in the World Youth Choir.
