International Orchestra Auditions Awards

Dear colleagues,
In this moment of global crisis, our sector is certainly among the hardest hit: musicians from all over the world are facing an uncertain and not very reassuring future.
Our University of Music has decided to launch a project that represents an attempt to offer musicians all over the world a valid and concrete possibility: INTERNATIONAL ORCHESTRA AUDITIONS AWARDS.

Through an online competition/audition, 60 musicians will be selected who will have the opportunity to play a European tour in the staff of the Samnium Symphony Orchestra in June 2021, in some of the most prestigious halls in the world: among these undoubtedly the Glass Hall of the MUSIKVEREIN IN VIENNA on June 21,2021. Besides, the winners of the  First Absolute Prize will receive a $ 1500.00 scholarship.

The audition will take place online and is divided into two phases:
- pre-selection (completely free) in which candidates must send a video of their choice from the solo repertoire, deadline August 31, 2020;
- final phase in which candidates must record and send one of the orchestral excerpts chosen from those received by the Jury at the end of preselections.
The competition has already received the patronage of important international institutions, including the Stiftung Mozarteum in Salzburg. We would be glad to count on your collaboration in this project.
We invite you to consult the rules and share it with your students.
Waiting for your kind reply,
Best regards
The artistic direction
