International Singing Competition of Toulouse

The International Singing Competition of Toulouse (French: Concours international de chant de Toulouse) is an international classical singing competition run by the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse, France.[1]

HistoryEdit

First edition took place in 1954.[2] Held annually from 1954 to 1994 (except in 1973), the competition was not held in 1995 due to theatre renovation work. When it resumed in 1996, the competition became biannual. The Competition has been a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions since 1958.[3]

In the 1970s and 1980s, the competition was marked by the large number of winners from the USSR, the United States and Romania. Since the mid-2000s, South Korea has been the winner, with 4 consecutive tenors having won the Grand Prix from 2008 to 2016.[4]
