Semi-Final 3 - Artistic Project

17-18 October 2024

Conservatoire de Genève


17-18 October, Salle Franz Liszt, Conservatoire de Genève

As part of the Semi-Finals, candidates are invited to submit a project highlighting their artistic personality. This project can take a variety of forms, from a purely musical proposal to a tour concept or even a collaboration with other art forms such as literature, the visual arts or dance.

The aim of the project is to give the jury and the public a better understanding of the candidates' artistic vision and what drives them in their musical journey. The project must be both engaging and realistic, and be suitable for a festival, concert season, theatre or tour.

Candidates have one month to prepare and develop their project from the announcement of the semi-finalists to the start of the competition in Geneva. Two individual online work sessions are organised with two coaches. The purpose of these individual sessions is to answer candidates' questions and guide them in the development of their project. Following these two sessions, candidates must submit a presentation of their project in the form of a text, PowerPoint presentation, video or any other medium.

Once in Geneva, each candidate will have to defend their project at a public presentation given in English by a journalist The Competition jury will then assess the project on the basis of its artistic interest,
originality and relevance to the artist's early career.
