The International Young Talents Music Competition (Istanbul)


From 3rd to 6th June will take place the second edition of the International Young Talents Music Competition in Istanbul. Organised by the BT Music School and Performing Arts and with support from the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, Istanbul Besiktas Municipality and the advice of EMCY, the first edition of the competition was held in May 2015 also in Istanbul.

The aim of the competition is not only to discover new and young talents. It wants to be a platform for musicians from different countries where they can meet, learn together and share a performing experience. The International Young Talents Music Competition also has the ambition to encourage cultural interaction and the development of an international music community which can lead to a better understanding of each others.

This new edition will be held in 'Piano Solo' category and be divided into two age categories: 9-13 years old and 14-18 years old. The deadline to send applications is 30th April. The competition is opened to all young pianists except for full time students of music conservatory, performing arts high school or any professional music school. More information about the procedure to enter the competition can be found here.

In a superb effort not to let down anyone from competing, this edition will also feature a 'Special Category' where musicians with special needs will be able to participate. For this category it is possible to enter with all instruments as well as voice.

The International Young Talents Music Competition is on the road to become an EMCY member.
