Dear applicants to the Second Arthur Nikisch International Conducting Competition,

we are about to reveal the names of the candidates admitted to the First Round.

Before we proceed we have an important notice to share with all of you.
Due to the worsening of the pandemic in Bulgaria, Sofia has been declared “orange zone” since today and we expect this condition to extend to the rest of Bulgaria soon.

We cannot foresee whether the situation will improve or get worse, at the moment the entrance in the country is possible and the concerts are still possible, even if with a very reduced number of audience and strict rules for the musicians on stage.

We will give you detailed information in a few days, we really hope we do not need to make any change in our schedule.

For all the reasons above, we ask the admitted candidates to wait further notice before paying the application fee and before booking flights and hotels.
