What We're Looking For
IVAAP is an international program with a focus on strong work ethic and pursuit of vocal growth. We are looking for singers who are driven, and who are serious about their work. Payerbach is a place for those with open minds to discover and explore the full potential of their voices, regardless of where they are in their vocal journey.
While we encourage you to enjoy yourselves in Payerbach, please note that excessive drinking or partying will not be tolerated, as it is disrespectful to the faculty and a detriment to other participants of the program.
To be a participant of IVAAP, we require that you either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start of the program, or that you quarantine and self-test for three days upon arrival and after any excursions outside of the town of Payerbach-Reichenau. In addition, we ask that you please stay up to date on Austria's latest COVID-19 guidelines.
