Finalists Announced for 2021 Getting to Carnegie Violin Competition

Due to COVID-19, the final round will be streamed on The Violin Channel on January 12th, instead of in–person at Carnegie Hall

The 2021 Getting to Carnegie Violin Competition, in New York City, announced its four finalists.

The 2021 finalists are:

  • VC Young Artist Maria Dueñas (Spain)
  • Sory Park (South Korea)
  • Angela Chan (Hong Kong/China)
  • Sophia Stoyanovich (United States)

In addition to receiving $4,000, the winner will be the featured violinist at the 2022 Getting to Carnegie Competition at Carnegie Hall, and at the 17th Water Island Music Festival in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

For the final round, each of the four finalists will perform one movement from Artistic Director, Julian Gargiulo's newly-composed violin and piano sonata.

“I couldn’t imagine four more exciting and talented young violinists to give the World Premiere of my new Violin Sonata,” Julian said. “The great thing about the competition being 100 percent online is that more people than ever will be 'Getting to Carnegie' this year!”

First place will be decided by a vote. Fifty percent of the vote will come from the audience watching the live stream on the Violin Channel’s Facebook page, and the other fifty percent will come from a jury of professional musicians.

This year's competition is generously supported by the Alphadyne Foundation.
