The Menuhin Competition London 2016
Menuhin Competition London 2016
Dubbed 'the Olympics of the Violin' the Menuhin Competition is the world's leading competition for young violinists, held every two years in a different world city (most recently Austin, Texas in 2014, Beijing in 2012 and Oslo in 2010). It attracts hundreds of entries from over 40 countries, choosing only 44 of the world's very best young violinists to participate. The competition discovers, encourages and nurtures exceptionally talented young musicians from the UK and the rest of the world under the age of 22 years to develop into the next generation of great artists.
To celebrate the centenary of its founder, Yehudi Menuhin, the Menuhin Competition returns to London for the first time since 2004, staging an 11 day festival of concerts, events, education and outreach activities in London from 7-17 April 2016, embodying Lord Menuhin's philosophy that music connects. The competition is hosted by the Royal Academy of Music, presented in partnership with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Southbank Centre, The Yehudi Menuhin School and Classic FM.
