Soprano Miryam Singer distinguished in Chile

The soprano and university singer Miryam Singer received, on Monday, Chile’s National Music Prize 2020 “for her extraordinary national and international career”, announced the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage.

In addition to his career, the jury also highlights “his solid career dedicated to the training of new musical talent, which has had international projections”.

Likewise, Miryam Singer’s capacity as “manager, director, producer and designer” was taken into account in this distinction, especially the “notable projects” that the artist animates and leads around the national opera scene, ensuring the promotion “from this field, the development of arts and culture” in Chile, noted the ministry in a statement.

In a statement on this occasion, the Soprano stated that she feels that she carries “the individual and collective flag of all women and all people who perform in opera”.

Despite training as an architect at the University of Chile, Singer decided to dedicate her life to opera, whether as a singer, director, producer or theatre designer.

Currently, Singer is Director of Arts and Culture at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (UC), a position she has held since July 2010. She is also a professor at the Opera Workshop of the Institute of Music at this prestigious Chilean university.

The National Award is the highest distinction granted by the State of Chile to the work of Chileans who, because of their excellence, creativity and transcendent contribution to the national culture and the development of knowledge and the arts, are awarded this prize.

Each distinguished person receives a diploma, a bonus of around $28,400 in addition to a monthly lifetime pension equivalent to around $1,300.
