After the tremendous success of both the 2013 and 2015 Whitgift International Music Competition, resulting in a number of talented boys winning a wide range of prizes, including a fully-funded boarding education and solo concerto opportunities with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the competition has established an international reputation for excellence.

With a panel of esteemed adjudicators, and opening recitals performed by world-renowned soloists including Ilian Garnetz and Remus Azotei, the competition attracts some of the finest young musicians in the world.

Past winners, Dan-Iulian Druţac and Hristo Dunev, have gone on to take up scholarship places at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the Royal Academy of Music, respectively. They have performed on a number of occasions with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and their success in the competition has provided them with outstanding opportunities for development, and set them on a path to fulfilling their musical ambitions.

Expanding to include String, Woodwind and Brass categories in 2017, the competition promises to be a superb event, taking place on 2 – 6 April 2017, at Whitgift, South London.

Applications for the Whitgift International Music Competition 2017 are now closed.
