Music makes us wonder, dream and awaken a variety of emotions in us. The voice as the "most human" of all instruments achieves all this in the various forms of singing. The Accademia Belcanto has set itself the goal of helping young singers to improve their skills and thus exploit the potential of their "instrument".
I am proud that the Association and the Accademia- Belcanto Festwochen have been able to give a stage to so many up-and-coming voices over the last five years and that our events have gained great popularity. We have developed an international reputation that has brought us far beyond the borders of our country.
The competition and its high-caliber jury, as well as the great master classes, are gaining recognition not only in Europe but also beyond, attracting participants from all over the world.
Music can connect people across borders. In this spirit, I wish all the participants a lot of success and a good time in the academy.
