WITH A VISIT TO THE COMPETITION'S PATRONESS
11 May 2023Today, May 11, there were no auditions scheduled for the XX Ada Sari International Vocal Artistry Competition in Nowy Sącz. As is customary, Thursday is set aside for the finalists' rehearsals with the orchestra. For the first time in the history of the Competition, the finals will take place outside of Nowy Sacz - in Krakow. The performances of young artists with the Krakow Opera Orchestra, conducted by Piotr Sulkowski, create many new opportunities for talent promotion.
NINE GREAT TALENTS! WE KNOW THE FINALISTS OF THE COMPETITION
10 May 2023Nine singers, including five women and four men, will perform in the final of the XX Ada Sari International Vocal Artistry Competition in Nowy Sącz - so it was decided today by an international jury working under the chairmanship of Małgorzata Walewska. Among them are three participants from Poland, two from South Korea and China, and one each from Ukraine and Germany. Vocally, the largest group are sopranos (3), followed by mezzo-sopranos (2), baritones (2) and one bass and tenor each.
DEMANDING STAGE II
9 May 2023Today, on Tuesday, 26 singers performed on the first day of the stage II of the XX Ada Sari International Vocal Artistry Competition in Nowy Sącz. Accompanied by the piano, the artists performed three or four pieces, chosen by the jury from a programme given by the participants. Their performances aroused a lot of emotion, as the repertoire required was exceptionally versatile. The presentation in the stage II lasted about 15 minutes, which must have been enough to show off a wide range of musical styles in front of the jury.
