Greetings from Helsinki, February 2024

We are happy to announce the names of the 56 singers selected for the preliminary round in June! We had a record number of 485 applications by the deadline. “It was very difficult to whittle down the number of singers to be selected for the competition, because of the huge number of promising singers of high quality”, says Soile Isokoski, jury chair. The selected applicants represent 25 different nationalities.
