The CIMA International Music Competition 2023

 

After an incredibly difficult year for all people around the world, as musicians we feel that we have the responsibility of making the world a better place. Our language is universal and conveys humanitarian values, peaceful communication and thoughtfulness. At these times, when hope is dim and motivation low, the MUSICAL WORLD must stand UNITED. As such, we thought of creating an event that would not only bring us together and promote classical music further, but also serve as a reason for people of all ages to not give up and continue practicing further. That is why we are proudly announcing our first ever Online edition of the CIMA International Music Competition - in Cooperation with konzertsaal.at. The annual international competition that takes place in the heart of VIENNA is going to be this time available to every passionate musician on each corner of the world.
