Grand Prize Competition:

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Grand Prize Competition will be in person on September 18th at Azusa Pacific University’s Munson Recital Hall. This could not have happened without the invaluable help of Dr. Andrew Park. We are extremely grateful for the time and effort he contributed to our community and to musical development in youth.

We are also pleased to announce that, thanks to the support from Soriel Music Academy,  the new “Soriel Music Ensemble Award” will be available this year. It is $100 cash reward for each of the ensemble category.

Grand Prize Invitation

The grand prize competition will be by invitation only. Invitations will be extended at the judges’ discretion. After the judges review all performances, Satori CM will extend invitations to qualified contestants.
