Additionally, all participants will get two-on-one private lessons and coachings with Fleming and such artists as Javier Arrebola, Harmut Höll, and Myra Huang.

This year’s vocal participants include Khayakazi Madlala,  Gabrielle Barkidjija, Ruby Dibble, Chuanyuan Liu, Edmond Rodriguez, Felix Gygli, Gabriel Rollinson, and Florian Störtz. They are joined by pianists Natalie Sherer, Anni Laukkanen, Tzu Kuang Tan, Ye In Kwak, Daniel Peter Silcock, Aleksandra Myslek, Yuriko Watanabe, and Jeong-Eun Lee.
