Comments from our competitors

“I have suggested this competition to many people already and will continue to do so in the future. It is easily the best organized and run of any competition I have ever done. In fact it is very difficult to think of any suggestions for the future because of how wonderful the experience has been.
I wish to extend my thanks to everyone involved and hope that you all continue as you have been for the next competition in 5 years. I’m sure those competitors will feel the same fondness for the Mirjam Helin International Singing Competition as I have.”

“The competition is the best in the world! Organization – fantastic! Kindest! Atmosphere – warm, wonderful! I will recommend to my friends for sure.
If I could say something I would advice only to make even more easier way to watch and listen to it via internet. I mean it was a bit complicated for some of my friends to watch it online.
Thank you so much to all of you! For your great kindness and care! I wish all the best to the Mirjam Helin Competition to grow, develop even more and be the most prestigious in the world.”
