The 12th Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition coming soon!

Posted by Soledad Sánchez Bueno on July 31, 2017  |  Leave a comment

The 12th Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition will be held from 14 to 18 December 2017, with the preliminary round lasting from 11 to 13 of the same month. Our ONLINE application portal will be open as of Friday 30 June 2017 at 10 a.m. Spanish time and will finish Friday 8 September.

The winner of the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition will conduct at least one concert with all the orchestras collaborating in the competition throughout the seasons 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20.

The orchestras who make a commitment to the competition and entrust the jury with the responsibility of choosing the winner are the real stars. Their trust is what makes the award unique in the world of orchestral conducting competitions, and what makes it, rather than a mere recognition of talent, into a solid platform supporting the professional career of the winner.
