Opportunity: Nanyang International Music Competition 2017
Taking place from 4-16 July, 2017 in Singapore, the inaugural Nanyang International Music Competition aims to provide a platform for musicians from around the world to challenge themselves and to reach higher standards of performance. More importantly, it seeks to inspire and to foster musical exchange within a supportive community of like-minded people.
“Aligned with the NAFA mission to inspire learning and growth through the arts, we hope that this competition would inculcate creative attitudes and a spirit of curiosity and responsibility in our young musicians as they come together to showcase their talents.”
Prizes for winners range from SG100 (third prize, Division E3, ensemble junior) – SG5,000 (Division A, solo artist).
What they are looking for
Young soloists (categories are under 30, under 22, under 16 and under 12) and ensembles (no age limits) to play either Western or Chinese classical pieces from memory.
Contest organizers (Rave Group International Pte Ltd) can assist international participants in securing flights and accommodations at discounted rates.
