 ABOUT THE COMPETITION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The triennial Singapore International Violin Competition serves to promote the continued growth and strength of classical music in the region, as well as providing a showcase for young violinists from around the world against the backdrop of Singapore’s world-class performance venues, its national orchestra and its internationally renowned music conservatory.

ELIGIBILITY
The competition is open to all violinists below the age of 30 [at year of competition].

STRUCTURE
Pre-selection
The competition is preceded by a pre-selection round through blind-listening of the submitted recordings.
This process is audited independently and the decision of the jury is final. The video dimension of the recording is only to ensure the authenticity of the submission.

Live Rounds in Singapore
All the live rounds are open to public.
Candidates will draw lots before the start of the competition and perform in the order established by the drawing of lots.
