2nd Lions World Song Festival for the Blind

Invite to all blind singers to take part in the 2nd Lions World Song Festival for the Blind „Sounds from the Heart“, which takes place in Poland, Cracow, between the 12th and 14th of November 2015.

The contest is intended for talented vocalists struggling with sight problems – blind or partially sighted, who are not professional musicians. We believe that the competition will start their professional careers.
Deadline registration: 31 may 2015.
