Auditions are held throughout the world in the autumn before the competition, with singers being selected to take part in Cardiff the following June. Each singer represents their own country. In Wales there is a competition to select the national representative; the winner of the Welsh Singers Showcase represents Wales in BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition. The BBC Cardiff Singer Song Prize, in which the competing singers present Lieder and art songs accompanied by internationally-renowned pianists Llŷr Williams and Simon Lepper, are judged by the Chair, Wigmore Hall’s Artistic and Executive Director John Gilhooly, along with Neal Davies and Roberta Alexander. These more intimate performances take place at the Dora Stoutzker Hall of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, with the Song Prize Final happening at St David’s Hall.
