Six applicants from El Estor Guatemala were selected by Solway Music Fellowship Organizing Committee in cooperation with The Salzburg Festival Fund representatives to continue their exciting journey on the gateway to the Stardrome, i.e. Salzburg music camp for youngsters. More than 120 creatives, aged 13 – 16 from Macedonia, Ukraine and Guatemala expressed their interest in applying for the program.

Selected applicants will now undergo 20 weeks of English language training in order to reach the second elimination round that will take place in late April 2017. The second round will be judged based on the applicant’s 90-second creative video, which is filmed in English and expresses the applicant’s self-presentation skills and demonstrates his/her talents in artistic disciplines.

Elimination rounds will take place in Ukraine, Macedonia and Guatemala, in the cities of Solway Group (the mother company for Guatemalan CGN and Pronico) enterprises’ residence.

The winners will spend a week without parents in the Salzburg castle in Austria. They will also visit a rehearsal and go backstage in the Baden-Baden Theater. At the end of the week the participants will present their opera to an audience. The international opera camp for teenagers, 14-17 years old, will take place in August 2017.
