7 to 17 APRIL 2016

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Yehudi Menuhin’s birthday, the Menuhin Competition returns to London for the first time since 2004. International soloists and 44 of the world’s best young violinists will star in an 11-day festival of concerts and events for all ages.

The competition is hosted by the Royal Academy of Music and presented in partnership with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Southbank Centre and the Yehudi Menuhin School and held in association with the Jewish Music Institute, National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and Live Music Now.

With a star-studded jury – many of them former prize winners – and a programme dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin, the Menuhin Competition London 2016 calls for entries from young violinists born after 17 April 1994.
