The Menuhin Competition is the world’s leading international competition for young violinists, held every two years in a different world city. To honour and celebrate Yehudi Menuhin’s life and legacy in the centenary year of his birth, the Menuhin Competition Trust staged an 11 day festival of concerts, events, education and outreach activities in London from 7-17 April 2016, embodying Lord Menuhin’s philosophy that music connects.
Prior to the Menuhin Competition London 2016 the Competition was held in Austin, Texas in 2014, Beijing in 2012 and Oslo in 2010. It attracts hundreds of entries from over 40 countries, choosing only 44 of the world’s very best young violinists to participate. The Competition discovers, encourages and nurtures exceptionally talented young musicians from the UK and the rest of the world under the age of 22 years to develop into the next generation of great artists.
Thank you to all of our partners, sponsors, supporters, host families and everybody that contributed to making the Menuhin Competition London 2016 the success that it was - a true celebration of the Menuhin centenary!
