Ishøj, Denmark
Woodwind Instruments | Symphonic strings

The first edition of this yearly competition took place in 2002 with the aim of giving young musicians from Denmark and Sweden the opportunity to cultivate their talent on a professional level and to strengthen the cultural cooperation in the Øresund Region (the transnational region centered on the cities of Copenhagen and Malmo).

The competition is open to string and winds players from 12 to 21 years old from Denmark and Sweden. It is an independent music organization, cooperating with music schools in Denmark and Sweden, orchestras, conservatories, and major music institutions in different countries. The competition patrons are the Danish violinist Nikolaj Znaider and the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. Although it covers two countries, this competition is classified by EMCY as a national competition
