The VII Mirjam Helin International Singing Competition begins on Monday 4 August. During the first two weeks in August we can look forward to performances by some of the best young vocal talents – 53 singers from all over the world. Judging from the pre-selection round, the standard of the competition promises to be extremely high.

Reporting their impressions of the competition in this Mirjam Helin blog will be a Shadow Jury and, from the Semifinals onwards, London-based opera critic Yehuda Shapiro. Read more about the members of the Shadow Jury on our website.

We warmly invite you to join us for the competition events, either on the spot or via the various media. Our celebration of vocal art is ready to begin.
