“The competition aims to offer young people the opportunity to showcase their musical talents, a forum to exchange ideas with young musicians from other countries and cultures and to receive impartial feedback, encouragement and assessment of their performances by Britain’s top music professors and educators,” said Amy Yuan.

“In light of the global impact of Covid-19, we also hope that this competition will serve as a platform where people come together to celebrate their mutual love of music and feel supported and inspired that music will always bring light to our lives and lift us as we find our way through difficult times.”

This year the New Talent Competition and Festival offered a series of talks hosted by jurors and guest speakers to participants free of charge.

New Talent has quickly become a recognised international platform which provides long-term growth and developments of global young musicians.
