Every year in May, the Queen Elisabeth Competition organises an international competition for classically trained musicians, aged between 18 and 30 years. In successive years, the Competition focuses on pianists, cellists, singers and violinists.

As the 2020 Piano Competition had to be postponed to 2021, the following cello, voice and violin competitions have also been postponed. Exceptionally, the upper age limit for candidates has been raised by one year, in order not to disadvantage the young musicians preparing for the sessions of 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025. From 2026, the normal age limit will apply again.

The candidates have to apply online on this website. The applications for Violin 2024 have closed on Wednesday 29 November 2023. Candidates for the 2025 Piano Competition can apply in autumn 2024.

We hope to welcome you in Brussels for one of our future competitions !
