International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition 2022
The 12th International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition has been rescheduled for May 18–29 2022. The competition was originally set to take place in Helsinki in late November and early December 2020, but due to global uncertainty around possible travel and assembly restrictions imposed to battle the coronavirus pandemic, the competition committee has decided to postpone the event.
The new dates were selected on the basis of multiple factors: the availability of the venues at Sibelius Academy and Helsinki Music Centre and schedules and previous commitments of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as those of the competition jury.
To ensure the fairness of the postponement procedure for all applicants, the 2022 edition of the International Sibelius Violin Competition will be open to all violinists born in or after 1990.
The closing date for applications is 31 January 2022.
