Video preselection
For this tenth voice edition, no less than 412 singers between 18 and 33 years old had applied. Each of them had recorded three works in at least two different languages and of at least two different periods for the video preselection round.

Preselection jury
The preselection took place behind closed doors at the end of January. An international jury consisting of Marc Clémeur, Helmut Deutsch, Sumi Jo, Sophie Karthäuser, José Van Dam and Reinoud Van Mechelen reunited for the first time under the presidency of Bernard Foccroulle. The names of the jury members of the public competition rounds will be announced later on.

The order in which the candidates will appear in the first public round will be announced after the drawing of lots, on Friday night 19 May. Don't miss out on the opportunity to hear some of the world's most prodigious young singers at work at Flagey, during the first round and semi-final, or at the Brussels Centre for Fine Arts for the final - and book your tickets now !
