ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Finally! For the first time ever, Sweden has its own International Festival For Young Singers.
Anyone in the age between 7-19 years (born 1997-2009) is welcome to apply. A total of 40 participants will finally be chosen for the festival.
Thank You For The Music, organized by Helges Vocal Studio, will take place

be divided in four age groups.

- The age groups may change if necessary
* A Final Gala Show at the Great Concert Hall of Gävle.
(You will need 2 songs for the festival)
Fun activities and a celebration to music.
- Thank You For The Music will be arranged in a friendly and positive spirit, with
the aim to give young singers the possibility of performing on a big stage and
meeting others with the same passion for music.
The competition part of the festival is mainly to keep it a little extra
exciting for the audience, and is to be taken with a relaxed and generous mind.
Our main focus will be on spending time together making concerts, and have a
really good time.
Our festival is a celebration to music and is made from the perspective
of the young participants. We will have lots of fun activities, such as disco, and
excursion to Gröna Lund - a big amusement park in Stockholm.
