The Menuhin Competition, originally scheduled to bring 44 of the world’s most talented young violinists to Richmond in May of 2020, will take place virtually from May 14-23, 2021. It distinguishes itself among competitions not only with the high level of playing among participants, but also for creating a festive, nurturing and collegial environment and providing an immersive musical experience for competitors that goes far beyond the competition rounds themselves. The 2021 virtual Competition aims to fulfill that promise by recreating the Competition as an online event that connects competitors, jurors, viewers and guest artists with each other and with Richmond.

The co-hosts—the City of RichmondRichmond Symphony, University of RichmondVirginia Commonwealth University and VPM, Virginia’s home for public media—are looking forward to providing a warm “virtual” welcome to the young violinists from around the world taking part in the Competition.
