This is a worldwide competition for classically-trained young talent. You can still submit a video of your child/teen/young adult and perhaps make it to Carnegia Hall -- and beyond!

 The 12th annual Crescendo International Youth Music Competition is accepting applications for all instrumentalists, vocalists and duets/ensembles age 5 to 22. Application deadline: November 1st, 2018.

First round live auditions are just days away and the application deadline to audition LIVE is Nov. 1st. But even if you can't apply online for the live auditions, you can still submit a video audition!

After the first round of auditions, those winners' recitals will be held this coming January and February at Carnegie Hall and other prestigious venues. With cash prizes for the best performers!

Competition winners will be eligible to participate in the Crescendo International Student Exchange Program next summer which will be hosted in Austria, Italy or Japan!
