Pinerolo and Turin
ENTRIES NOW OPEN
Entiries now open for the next International Chamber Music Competition “Città di Pinerolo e Torino – Città metropolitana”, member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions in Geneva, which will take place in Pinerolo and Turin from 5 to 11 March 2018. This important event, always a showcase for future stars of the music world, will gain added prestige thanks to a collaboration between the City Councils of Pinerolo, Torino and the surrounding area: the final concert, on 11 March, will be held in the auditorium of the Conservatory of Turin, with performances from some of the most talented young musicians on the international music scene.
At the last ICM in 2016 50 chamber music ensembles (under 33) competed, for a total of around 150 musicians from all over the world. Money prizes amounting to 23,000 euros provided by the Competition were awarded by a jury of eminent musicians of international renown. There was also an award voted by the audience, who then had the opportunity to win a trip to a city in Italy.
As is our custom, the elimination round and the semifinals of the Competition will be held in the concert hall of the Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo from 5 to 10 March 2018, and will be open to the public, offering them an opportunity to enjoy the exciting atmosphere of this world-famous competition, as well as the chance to hear live performances from some of the most brilliant young musicians on the international music scene.
The final round, which will be held on Sunday 11 March 2018 in the prestigious Concert Hall of the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatoire of Turin. (final round 9 am – 5 pm; concert performed by the 5 finalist ensembles 8:30 – 11:00 pm, prizegiving and closure). As well as the distinguished jury, the audience will also play a key role in the prize giving, voting to decide the audience award. The name of one of the audience members voting for this award will then be drawn at random: their prize will be a trip to a city in Italy.
