Change in conditions for admission!

In 2022 the competition will be open to duos of which one person is registered as a student, while the other has been registered as such and has received his or her diploma on or after March 17th 2021. Please note that this an exception to our normal regulation. We decided to give more graduated students the possibility to enroll, because of the limited possibilities they had last years, due to COVID and the fact that we postponed this edition for the same reasons.

The flyers have been sent today!

Within the next days your Conservatory, Music Academy, Universität, Conservatoire or Musikhochschule will receive the flyer/poster with a lot of information about the International Student LiedDuo Competition 2022. Also your teachers or head of departments will have the digital flyer, that they can forward to all of you.

Think wisely about your repertoire, the application portal is welcoming you from 17 March, 8 months before the beginning of the competition. For quick deciders, who apply ultimately on 17 June, there will be an ‘early bird”-advantage concerning the compulsory repertoire.
