How it works?
If you are interested in participating, we recommend that you e-mail us at Info@barcelonafestivalofsong.com expressing your interest in order to secure your place.
Bear in mind that a limited number of participants are accepted each year. Then fill the application form. Fill it in and send it via e-mail or regular mail to the offices of the festival in Barcelona. There is an application fee of 50€ that can be payed online using Paypal. This application fee is non refundable. We encourage participants to take advantage of the Internet to send their materials.
Which repertoire do I have to prepare? Once the festival receives the application and approves the candidate, we will compile a unique program of about 8 to 10 songs for each participant. The songs will be in Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. We usually send the music to the participant or we indicate where the music can be found. Participants should prepare their repertoire before arrival.
How much do I have to pay and when? Tuition fees need to be paid in full before the deadline expires. There are three different deadlines and the price varies according to the deadline. We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have. In special cases we allow participants to pay in three installments. If you need to make use of the installment plan, please enquire about it in your e-mail. Our financial department will be happy to assist you. We can also give you advice about flights and accommodation for relatives who wish to come with the participants. All the information about how to pay and how much is found in our Payment options located at the left menu.
Do you offer scholarships? The BFOS offers partial scholarships for returning students and for duos (singer & pianist/guitarist) and also considers partial scholarships to outstanding applicants. You can ask for it in your e-mail.
I don't speak Spanish, will I understand the classes? Don't worry; the classes are in English! For the songs we will have Spanish, Catalan and Brazilian Portuguese diction classe
