2021 Chicago International Music Competition and Festival
The Chicago International Music Competition and Festival will be held ONLINE again in 2021. We realized that the pandemic still impacts travel, visas, and costs for aspiring musicians around the world. By holding our competition and festival online, we can reach a larger, more diverse group of contestants as well as festival students. Like last year, we will increase our prize money, create new prizes and categories, and engage the world's leading musicians as jury members and teaching faculty. THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS JULY 15, 2021.
