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.

Young people can share their gift of song or mastery of a musical instrument in Rotary’s Young Musician competition.

Participants will get the chance to experience performing on a public stage and receive feedback from experienced judges, plus it offers a great chance for future collaboration with fellow musicians.
