Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition 2020

20 talented young violinists, ages 16-32, from around the globe will compete January 14-26 for a $30,000 first prize, plus networking, management, public relations, community engagement and concert opportunities at the The Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition 2020! This international musical event occurs only once every three years.

Drawing straws to determine performance order, the four emerging finalists will compete head-to-head, performing select violin concertos with the Lynn Philharmonia, Jon Robertson, conducting. Two finalists will perform on January 25 at 7:30 p.m. and two will perform on January 26 at 4 p.m. Then the jury deliberates before announcing the 2020 winner!

It’s a thrilling musical competition of global proportions right here in Boca Raton–and great seats are available if you act quickly.

Quarter Finals and Semi Finals free and open to the public. Tickets for Finals range $35-$50.
