Who can participate?

Meesters&Gezellen is a project for young, talented singers with well-developed solo voices (s/a/t/b), studying at, or recently graduated from a conservatory, and singers of a comparable level.

NB. The deadline for applications is 26 November 2021.

Would you like to participate? Follow the three steps below.

Step 1. It would be great if you could send us recordings of:

  • a Lied or aria (preferably by Bach or Mozart) of your own choice;
  • vocalises (download here);
  • a selection of Car nos vignes sont en fleur by Ton de Leeuw (download here).

Did you participate before? Although it is not obligatory to submit new recordings, we do recommend that you do so. It helps us evaluate the progress that you have made since.

Step 2. Fill out the application form.

Step 3. Upload your audio files and a short resume (1/2 pp A4) by using this upload link.

We’ll be in touch within a week to confirm your application.

For all other questions about the initiative and the application procedure, please contact Geert Berghs via info [at] tettix [dot] nl or at  +31 (0) 6 2450 3960.

Please note: where needed (if staying over at friends and family is not possible) we will assist in finding a place to stay if travel distances from your Dutch base to rehearsals and concerts are too long.
