"Jugend musiziert" is a competition for young people making music by playing instruments and/or singing and celebrated its 51st anniversary in 2014.
Under the patronage of the Federal President, Germany’s most important music competition motivates thousands of young musicians to perform every year. Apart from the competition itself, the event is an opportunity for enthusiastic young musicians to meet and rise to the challenge of demonstrating their artistic talent in front of a distinguished jury of experts.
At the German School London there is a history of close cooperation between music teachers from within and outside the school, so that there are several music concerts per year and an above-average number of pupils play one or more musical instruments.
The German School London hosted the “Jugend musiziert” competition in 2005 and 2012. The hosting country changes every year amongst the German Schools abroad in North-East Europe.
There is also the special category for younger children: "Kinder musizieren".
As a venue for the competition, London with its rich musical culture demonstrates just how diverse music can be; from the countless number of musicals performed in the West End to the concerts in the world famous Royal Albert Hall, where international artists perform. This alone should offer enough inspiration and motivation for the young artists entering the “Jugend musiziert” competition.
Categories and instruments
This year’s competition comprises in the solo section: piano, harp, vocals, drums, and guitar. Additionally, there are the following categories for ensembles: strings, wind section, accordion chamber music, and new music. The instruments in the categories change each year.
