Laureates Festival : 8-15 November 2015
The Geneva Competition launched its first Laureates Festival 2013. This first edition was met with enthusiasm, which encouraged us to reiterate the experience. Alongside this year's Composition Prize, the Laureates Festival 2015 will offer no less than 23 concerts inviting close to 40 prizewinners of the Geneva Competition! Some of the highlights of this year's festival are : the composition public final, a gala concert at the Victoria Hall with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and a "piano week-end" at teh Bâtiment des Forces Motrices inviting 17 piano laureates...
The complete programme will be announced at our press conference mid-September 2015.
Prizewinners benefit from two full years of services from the ProMusica Genève concert agency, giving them the opportunity to take their first steps on the Swiss and international musical scene. More than just a guarantee of obtaining concerts and engagements, this programme aims at promoting the laureates after their victory.
