Young Musician Competition 2018-19

Music is the international language and Great Britain and Ireland is home to some of the most talented young instrumentalists and vocalists in the world. We celebrate this talent with a sequence of competitions that offer thousands of young people the chance to demonstrate their musical skills whether classical or modern. The Rotary Young Musician competition provides a stage for musical talent to shine in regional competitions before the grand final itself. Starting with club level competitions, winners progress to district events followed by regional contests with the hope of appearing at the national final.

This four stage national competition aims to encourage development of musical talent and offers young people;

    experiance of performing on a public stage
    an opportunity to showcase their musical talent
    impartial feedback of performance by experienced adjudicators

The competition is open to amateurs in full time education, up to the age of 17. It is not open to full time students of music or performing arts, studying for a qualification above A level.
