Thanks to the implementation of the COVID certificate, the Prix de Lausanne team is optimistic about organizing a normal edition, taking place live in Montreux. However, it is still too early to tell. The Prix de Lausanne will provide an update on the situation in the coming weeks.
Prix de Lausanne’s Artistic and Executive Director Kathryn Bradney, “The video selection process is always a very important step, as it marks the beginning of the Prix de Lausanne season. In the coming months, we will progressively learn about the selected young talents, and put all our care and know-how in welcoming their arrivals for our next competition. This year, after a break that seemed too long, we are incredibly excited about seeing them again in person, with all the members of the artistic team, and observing their ascent from so close.”
