The Kurt Weill Foundation for Music today announced an extension of the application deadline for the 2022 Lenya Competition preliminary auditions. The new deadline, Wednesday, 2 February, was announced to ensure that as many contestants as possible can safely prepare for and participate in this year’s contest. The Competition guidelines otherwise remain unchanged. As previously permitted, contestants may use pre-recorded accompaniment in their preliminary audition videos if pandemic conditions make it unsafe to record in a live setting.
