9th International Hilde Zadek Singing Competition 2015

Hildegard Zadek Stiftung, Karlsruhe, Germany 

The main aim of the Hildegard Zadek Foundation is to promote gifted young singers. A particular focus here lies on contemporary music. For this reason since 2003, together with Vienna’s music and performing arts university Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, the foundation has organized an international singing competition every two years. Since the outset the competition has focused on New Music. Targeting the Modern Age like this demands a precise, concentrated exploration of the “new” and the “now” and requires both an intellectually and artistically unbiased approach. With its top notch international jury the aim of the competition is to promote the best young singers and to give them a springboard into all areas of the international music business. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is once again supporting the competition in 2015 by funding the 1st prize. 

April 6–11, 2015 
Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst and the Gläserner Saal, Musikverein, Vienna, Austria
