We are delighted to inform you that Helena Dix, winner of the 2012 Wagner Society Bayreuth Bursary competition, has been chosen to go forward to the next round of the International Competition for Wagner Voices 2012. We are very proud that she will be representing The Wagner Society in this event.
Our President, Dame Gwyneth Jones, will be one of the judges.
Helena was one of 36 candidates (out of 110 that applied) chosen to go forward to the next round, which will be held in Bayreuth, during the week of the Bursary in August.
If she is successful in this next round, Helena will travel to Karlsruhe in October for the semi-finals, and, we hope, the finals.
I am sure you will all join me in wishing her the very best in this competition.
I will be going to Bayreuth and to Karlsruhe to cheer her on,
and will keep you all posted.
Bayreuth Bursary Administrator
