“OHRID PEARLS” – International competition of young musicians has been held every year since 2002 in the beautiful setting of Lake Ohrid. We believe that music competitions stimulate passionate musicianship. For many young people, they’re a first glimpse of performing in public, playing in ensembles, or of breaking out of traditional repertoire. Every year, a number of young musicians take part in our competitions. The competition and the seminars during it, are an important and constant part of music education for young musicians. The purpose of the competition is to activate extraordinarily talented pupils and students, to notice the level of progress of music education, and to enable gifted pupils to become professional artists.
