Welcome to Crescendo International Competition 2020-21 Season!

We are pleased to announce the 2020-2021 season of Crescendo International Youth Music Competition open!

All of us here at Crescendo International Competition hope you are staying healthy and in good spirits!

First Round - Auditions - will be held in November and December 2020. Young musicians of all instruments and vocal age 5 to 22 y.o. are welcome to participate. Most locations will have online auditions either by video submission or via live teleconferences.  Some venues may permit in-person auditions; please check with the local representative nearest to you.

The deadline to apply is a week prior to the audition, and the results will be announced online.  Please check the competitions auditions page for the auditions locations and dates: https://www.crescendocompetition.org/international-competition/main

The Second Round - Winners' Recitals - is planned to be held online, as all popular venues including Carnegie Hall are closed until further notice.  If Carnegie Hall reopens and we will be able to conduct live Winners' Recitals, we will notify our participants as soon as we have confirmed recital dates and times.

All Winner's Certificates and Medals will be sent by mail.

Our Students Exchange Program to Japan and Italy is planned for summer 2021.

Please stay healthy, be safe, and remember to keep practicing!
