The Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition recognises the song tradition as a whole and requires contestants to perform in at least three languages. At the same time it honours the Lied's place at the heart of the song repertoire and celebrates the Shakespearean stature of Schubert in the genre.

This year’s competition celebrates the outstanding contribution of the late Sir Ralph Kohn FRS as its original founder. It is also a fitting tribute to this great man and his huge contribution to medical science, philanthropy and music.
