I International
Vocal Competition

"Wind's Voices"
Dear friends!
Dmitry Danilov music agency
invites you to take part in the
I International Vocal Online-Competition "Wind's Voices".

Of course, historically music competitions were meant as events where musicians from different countries and cities met, communicated, exchanged repertoire and competed - after all, the competitive element in art is not as important as in sports, but it is also very interesting.
When the coronavirus pandemic began, the usual connection, the usual communication between people was disrupted, many aspects of life had to be revised. And, of course, in these conditions, it has become very difficult to hold contests in the usual face-to-face format. But the need to hold music competitions has not gone away, so the organizers began to transfer contests to online mode.
It would seem that with the weakening of coronavirus restrictions and the resumption of public events, the need for online contests could "come to naught", but everything turned out to be completely different. In the last few years, the world has been constantly shaken by cataclysms - wars, revolutions, epidemics. Because of this, logistics has become significantly more complicated, air ticket prices have increased, and for many artists, a trip to an international competition has become a very difficult, and sometimes impossible task. But participation in international competitions is the most important element of creative development - in addition to an important competitive element, it is the exchange of experience and repertoire, and acquaintance with different singing schools, and the discovery of new styles and directions in the performance of music.
Therefore, Dmitry Danilov's Music Agency decided to establish the First International Vocal Competition "Wind's Voices".

Features of our competition
The competition will be held in an unusual format. The first round will be held in the form of a "blind audition" - based on audio recordings submitted by participants under the motto or pseudonym. Based on the results of listening to audio recordings, the jury will make estimates, after which the finalists will be determined.
The second round of the competition will be held based on video recordings, from which the online concert program will be compiled. During the broadcast of the gala concert, an audience vote will be held, during which the winner of the audience sympathy will be determined. As at our already well-known "New Melodies" composer competition, the names of the jury members will be announced simultaneously with the summing up of the competition.
The Voices of the Wind competition is a partner of the International Composers Competition "New Melodies" and one of its main tasks is to increase the interest of performers in the work of contemporary authors and create creative contacts "composer-performer". Therefore, in the requirements for competitive programs, the emphasis is on the performance of music written in the XXI century.
