The International Vocal Competition ‘s-Hertogenbosch wants to assure a Competition of high safety and artistic standards. 
The current situation is complicated. The theatres and concert halls in the Netherlands were closed until 1st June and severe restrictions have been implemented after reopening.
We cannot foresee what the international travel situation will be at the end of August and have therefore decided to cancel the live auditions of the Preliminary Rounds. 
Enrolment for the YouTube Preliminary Rounds has been suspended, while we are investigating possible scenarios for our 54th Competition coming November. 
As soon as we have more clarity about the Competition we will advise you via our website, newsletter and social media channels.
