Young audience prize

Last year, the Geneva Competition innovated by offering a Young Audience Prize, in partnership with Médecins sans Frontières. This experience was a great success, attracting close to fifty young students.

This year, for the Composition Prize 2013, The Geneva Competition will be renewing this project in partnership with the Ensemble Contrechamps and with the support of Médecins Sans Frontières. Students from music schools will vote according to specific criteria, thus representing the voice of young musicians today. 

On Saturday November 30th at 5 pm at the Studio Ernest-Ansermet - the day before the official Final - the five finalists will present their pieces to the members of the Young Audience Jury, explaining their musical choices and answering the jury's questions. The two soloists will also be there to perform short excerpts of each piece. 

If you are a student of a music school in Geneva, are between 12 and 17 years, and curious to discover the secrets of contemporary creation, come join the jury of the Young Audience Prize !
