European Musical Competition in Italy, 1-8 May 2011

The Associazione Musicale Melody of Italy announce that the third edition of their Concorso Musicale Europeo will take place at the Town Auditorium, Piazza M. Serrao, in the city of Filadelfia (Vibo Valentia), in the 'toe' of southern Italy, on 1-8 May 2010.

This music competition is dedicated to the memory of the operatic composer Paolo Serrao (1830-1907), and extends over music in general. Categories of entry include opera singing, pianoforte, strings, woodwind, guitar, accordion, percussion, chamber music, and school instrument classes, choirs, and bands. Up to €20,000 is to be won in prizes. The competition is open to young musicians of any nationality, provided they have not previously won the overall first prize in the same category for which they are applying.

The Associazione Musicale Melody is linked to the EBMA's Facebook group, and some readers of the European Bluegrass Blog may benefit from checking out the AMM website. The EBB carried news of the 2010 competition on 29 December 2009.
