SoNoRo Interferences, the educational program of the SoNoRo International Chamber Music Festival, reaches 15 years of existence in 2021.This year, scholarships for singing lessons will be awarded for the first time, the vocal chamber music being one of the pearls of the classical musical repertoire. Thus,students studying singing will have the chance to participate in this program, together with the colleagues who are learning to play a musical instrument.

Young musicians who wish to apply for singing scholarships are invited to complete the registration form on the site and submit the registration of two songs in two different languages, an aria and a lied, by May 15th, 2021, on the e-mail address mariaclara@sonoro.ro.

The SoNoRo Interferences program, supported by UniCredit Bank, is addressed to Romanian musicians, aged between 14 and 30, and was initiated in order to create a long-term musical elite, continuing the SoNoRo Festival's approach to include Romania in the circuit of the European musical life. For over 14 years, more than 400 scholarships have been awarded, and in the 15th year, even in a complicated context, but with full responsibility, SoNoRo Interferences continues its mission.

The purpose of a week of intensive training is especially this interference between young musicians in the making and their masters. By practicing with someone better than you, you interpret better. Looking back, I found that these workshops were a turning point in the musical evolution of young people, launching them with confidence to renowned international competitions or helping them become students at prestigious universities in Europe.It also stimulated both the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the fellows, many of them creating chamber ensembles, concert series or even international competitions.

I am happy to reach the 15th edition, when we introduce for the first time in the history of the project the auditions for singing, showing that even in unfavorable conditions we do our best to continue our mission to educate as many talented young musicians as possible. .- Răzvan Popovici, the executive director of the SoNoRo Festival and the initiator of the SoNoRo Interferences program.

This year's workshops will take place at Casa Artistilor (Busteni, Romania), in Palazzo Ricci (Montepulciano, Italy) and in Traunstein (Germany).

The masters who will guide the scholarship holders are the following: Mihaela Martin (violin / professor at theMusic Academy Köln, Barenboim-Said Academy, Berlin, Germany), Răzvan Popovici (viola / Raro Ensemble, Germany), Frans Helmerson (cello / professor at Kronberg Academy, Kronberg im Taunus, Germany), Valentin Răduțiu (cello / first cellist Deutsches Symphonieorchester in Berlin, Germany), Diana Ketler (piano / professor at the Royal Academy of Music, UK and Haute École de Musique, Geneva, Switzerland) and Pauls Putnins (international opera singer, UK).

At the end of each work session, the young musicians will perform the works studied during the workshop with their teachers.

The SoNoRo Interferences scholarship is aimed at young musical talents and consists of free one-week courses (chamber music and solo instrument: piano, violin, viola, cello and clarinet; singing), accommodation and meals during the program. More details on https://interferente.sonoro.ro/.

In the context of compliance with all conditions to combat the Covid-19 epidemic, as last year, the number of workshop participants will be reduced. The winners of the SoNoRo scholarships who did not have the opportunity to be awarded the scholarship in 2020 will participate in workshops with the newly selected scholarship holders, and this year eleven new scholarships will be awarded.
