Initiator Eva LIND on the task: "I am delighted that I have been able to launch the Tyrolean Classical Singing Prize with our EVA LIND MUSIC ACADEMY TIROL.

As a singer, I know how important support is right at the beginning of a career. In addition to the chance of generous support, the award winners also have the opportunity to make several public appearances - including at the GRANDE FINALE of the Eva Lind Music Academy in Tyrol and at concerts in Germany and abroad.

My heartfelt thanks especially to the state of Tyrol and the ORF Tyrol for the willingness to support this project both financially and medially. "
