Guitar Competition Jose Tomas – Villa Petrer and Classical Guitar Competition of Finland will organise a new online competition during fall 2020. Apply during July 15th - August 9th 2020. The competition has three rounds and the finals are held on November 8th 2020.


Now everyone through the world can apply to these two competitions with one application. Process is one but prizes are double – it’s even possible to win both competitions with only one registration fee and clear the table. Or what do you think of winning a concert tour in Southern America and Spain, getting a cash prize and recording contract, and becoming an EuroStrings Artist 2021? The EuroStrings project will take the winners to an European tour consisting of concerts, master classes and teaching. The year will be highlighted by a competition between 19 EuroStrings winners – one will receive even more impressive prizes.
