International Competition for Young Instrumentalists “Gran Premio Povoletto”

All competitions
12/11/2022 - 12/11/2022
Povoletto, Italy
Brass instruments | Euphonium | Trombone | Tuba

The competition was born from an idea of the Director Franco Brusini who saw a need especially in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, for musical competitions for young people under the age of 18 years. The idea behind the Competition is to verify the quality level of music teaching in Italy, comparing it with musical schools of other European countries.

Therefore, the competition aims to be a moment of encounter between students of different music schools and, at the same time, of verification and comparison of the levels acquired by each, in a correct competitive spirit, encouraging children to study music and contributing to the affirmation and qualification of new talents.
