The 6th International Song Competition in Sofia gives young singers and pianists the possibility to demonstrate their musicianship and artistic maturity. 

Candidates must compete as a Duo Voice – Piano. It is the aim of the competition to discover an outstanding lied-duo, to help young singers and pianists to find international recognition, and hopefully to create a new public for the song as an art form.
