Somerset Song Prize

Somerset Opera supports young performers in a range of ways. In addition to its Young Performers Programme, Somerset Opera is delighted to support the Somerset Song Prize (SSP). The SSP is a biennial national singing competition for young people aged 18 to 26.


SSP2017: with a First Prize of £1000 the competition is organised through a series of regional rounds followed by semi-finals and a final over one weekend in Taunton. There is also a £1000 prize for the best pianist. The finals for next competition will be on 13-14 May 2017.


Regional rounds will take place in Somerset, Cardiff, Birmingham and London in March/April 2017.
