About the Competition

The Queen Sonja International Music Competition is one of the world’s leading voice competitions. It takes place every second year in Oslo, and is open for singers from all over the world. The main goal of the Competition is to assist the career development of talented young singers. It also acts as a bridge builder between the Norwegian and international music scenes.

The competition’s institutional partners include The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, the Norwegian Academy of Music, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and The Royal Court. 

In 2012 The Queen Sonja International Music Competition was recommended by Musical America in the category "High Level Competitions". They point to the highly distinguished international jury and concert engagements for the top three winners with leading Norwegian orchestras as particularly attractive aspects of the Competition.

The next competition will take place in August 2017.
