Kamermuziek Concours Jong Gelre is for every young musician aged 12 to 19, whether they are already studying at a conservatory, are considering doing so or know they never will, but can make beautiful music.
They present themselves as a duo, trio or any other ensemble of any size, but always without a conductor. To be clear, the soloist is excluded. The repertoire is classical music, from ancient to contemporary.
Kamermuziek Concours Gelre is a national competition based in Nijmegen. Its partner is Concertgebouw De Vereeniging in Nijmegen. It has close ties with the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam. New in 2023 is the launch of Kamermuziek Concours Jong Gelre for young people aged 12 to 19.
A professional jury will select six ensembles from the video entries. These will play in the finals in the Kleine Zaal in De Vereeniging in Nijmegen in front of an audience. The jury listens and gives feedback. Prizes include master classes. Would you like to participate in the Kamermuziek Concours Jong Gelre, but could still use some help?
