Apply to the IOA

The IOA organises an Extra VIDEO Audition for Tenors, Baritones, Basses and Pianists for the next academic year (2020 – 2021) = 1 year programme.
The audition dates+locations for the 2 year programme (2021-2023) for all voicetypes and pianists will be launced at the end of June 2020.

To enroll at the IOA you must:

  • not be older than 32;
  • have completed a programme in classical singing or piano (Bachelor or Master) OR have equivalent experience.

Candidates can apply via Video before 12:00, Monday 15 June.

Who should audition?

If you are looking for an up-to-date programme responding to the demanding and selective reality of the professional opera world… If you want to be taught by internationally acclaimed teachers and masters (Linda Watson, Charlotte Margiono, Peter Konwitschny…), who closely follow your trajectory to become a successful singer/repetiteur, then we invite you to apply for auditions at the International Opera Academy (IOA), in the beautiful, vibrant and historical city of Ghent.

*The focus of the next academic year will be on projects, productions and concerts – so if you want to work on your stage experience, this is your chance!
