The very first Havets Röst was selected in August 2017. Idea for the competition came from Annika Ollinkari-Fagerholm and Mikael Fagerholm who spend their summers in Åland and are both working in the field of vocal arts. They wanted to bring this new competition to Åland to further develop the musical life on the island as well as promote the cultural values along with environmental awareness.

Havets Röst is fortunate to have Mr Anders Wiklöf supporting the competition with providing the prizes (6 000 e/ 2 000 e/ 500 e) for the winners. 

The competition is open for under 30-year-old classical singers from Nordic and Baltic countries.
