NEUE STIMMEN International Singing Competition
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” In the true sense of French author Victor Hugo’s words, the NEUE STIMMEN International Singing Competition is not only an attractive springboard for national and international singing careers, but also an important building block for mutual understanding and communication. Music is an essential part of our human nature - a common language that connects people of different backgrounds and cultures beyond any borders.
The NEUE STIMMEN competition supports and nurtures rising international opera talents, as a way of maintaining and supporting ongoing development in the world of classical music. In addition, the competition has been conceived as an instrument for promoting international understanding, based on the fundamental belief that honoring cultural diversity and the uniqueness of all human beings as individuals is of paramount importance.
