Concert Artists Guild 2021
Concert Artists Guild is committed to supporting the highest level of musician by recognizing their full potential in an ever-changing world. CAG seeks to partner with musicians who are thoughtful citizen artists and have a commitment to connecting their music to the greater world. Artists who fit these criteria are encouraged to apply to the 2021 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Virtual Competition.
The 2021 Concert Artists Guild Competition is open to all instruments, voice, and chamber ensembles. We encourage unique chamber ensemble combinations.
Please note: CAG represents solo singers for recitals, chamber music, and orchestral engagements only, not for opera.
To align with our European partner, YCAT, our annual competition will be moved to the spring starting in 2021 (no fall 2021 competition). For the safety of the competitors, jury and staff, our 2021 competition will once again be held virtually. To apply, you must fill out the online application form and pay the application fee below. All applications will be evaluated in the preliminary, semifinal, and final rounds by qualified jury panels.
