Crescendo International Music Competition

Crescendo International Music Competitions is a non-profit organization registered in the USA under IRS code 501(c)(3) which operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes since 2007.

Our mission is to inspire individuals to pursue their passion for music through involvement in competitions, master classes and other educational programs. Crescendo’s vision of placing performers at the center of the process distinguishes us from other music competitions. Our objective is not simply to select the best musicians, but to reward those who demonstrate a passion for music and show considerable progress, talent and unwavering dedication.

Crescendo proudly hosts two music competitions every year: Little Mozarts Music Competition (ages 3-14) and Crescendo International Music Competition (ages 5-22) winners of which have an opportunity to participate in our International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).

Debuting in 2019 season, we host a Music festival for young musicians with disabilities.
