Now in its third year, the Sydney International Song Prize encourages the performance and study of Art song and Lieder. Each of the five singers and their accompanists will perform a twenty minute recital programme featuring some of the most beautiful works by leading French, German, English and Spanish composers. Each finalist will compete for a $3,000 first prize plus scholarships to the Munich Art of Lied Summer School and Melbourne Int. Festival of Lieder and Art Song. The SISP is part of the 2019 Joan & Richard Bonynge Foundation's "Festival of Opera and Song".
