Malaysian Youth Music Festival

Tentative venue: Putrajaya Marriott Hotel, IOI Resort City (To be confirmed at later date)


Celebrating the 10th anniversary for Malaysian Youth Music Festival, the Foundation have revised the Young Artists Competitions and continue to provide more workshops to help students and teachers improve in their music learning & teaching.

In homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 260 birth year in 2016, MYOF will feature a 10th anniversary Young Artists Piano Competition where Mozart’s Theme and Variations will be featured as the compulsory pieces. Revised age group categories are introduced, along with a requirement for another compulsory piece for two Patron Award selections from Piano Categories. (See details below)

New grouping of age groups for Young Artists Violin Competitions will be introduced due to the number of violin participants anticipated which will be less than piano entries. Similar to Young Artists Piano Competitions, there will also be another compulsory piece required for only one Patron Award selection. The Young Artists Competitions will only be made available for Piano and Violin Solo in 2016.

Open Categories / Group Entries remain the same with revision of age groups only. There will be no Chamber Ensemble competitions but Instrumental Ensembles for both Modern and Orchestral instruments remains the same.

There will also be several workshops held on the 10th September. More details will be published later. Below are the details for Young Artists Categories' details. The information on participating fees, and other categories will be published by end of January.

Follow us on Facebook to get updates on a non-competitive performance for MMTN member's students, a call for score competition for Piano and Violin pieces in the near future.
