The young 22-year-old mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo won First Prize and the Audience Award in the Cesti Singing Competition in Innsbruck. Second Prize went to Eléonore Pancrazi from France followed by Giulia Bolcato from Italy.

More than 170 young singers from 39 nations applied for the prestigious singing competition for Baroque opera, organized by the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music. After a high quality final concert with 12 remaining competitors, Canadian mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo came out as the big winner: her passionate performance of arias by Cavalli and Handel convinced the jury and the audience.
