The Euroasia Competition Series seeks to provide a platform and opportunity for aspiring musicians to be exposed to international standards of music competition. In this regard, the Euroasia Competition Series hopes to recognise talents at various stages of their musical development, and to identify those who can best project a balance of creativity, imagination in choice of repertoire, and overall artistic excellence. Euroasia firmly believes that performance is a vital part of music development. As such, the Euroasia Competition Series is not about identifying the “best” musician, but about bringing together youths bound by the same passion for music to perform before a wider audience in a concert setting. Euroasia is proud to share that the Euroasia Competition Series has extended beyond Malaysian shores to attract participants from Singapore, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan and China in recent years.
The partnership with Festival De Musique Des Arcs will enable the 2017 Patron’s Prize winner and future winners of the Euroasia Strings Competition to have the wonderful opportunity to study with some of the best educators in France. The First Prize Winner of the Young Artiste Category will be offered a concerto performance with the Siam Sinfonietta, Thailand’s most internationally renowned youth orchestra.
The Open Category aims to celebrate music achievement at all levels, whereas the Young Artiste Category aspires to identify and discover the next generation of artistes who demonstrate exceptional talent and artistry in their performance. The Ensemble Category seeks to provide young musicians with an opportunity to further accelerate their artistic growth and excel in their chamber musical skills by collaborating and performing together with fellow musicians.
All categories will have 2 rounds: a regional preliminary round and national-level final.
