Goal:

“Encore” invites all young musicians who continuously participate in music contests to demonstrate their talents and individuality in music. The goal of this competition is to encourage students to use one more opportunity to showcase their unique qualities. We believe that every stage experience helps students to learn about themselves and grow musically while learning to compete against others. Every young musician who participates in this competition receives an award. “Encore” will recognize each musical talent by rewarding medals and special prizes. This allows each participant to feel a sense of accomplishment and realize own uniqueness in a challenging field of performing art.
