In 2023 Triumph Music Festival will be held at two different locations: Philadelphia, PA, USA, and Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia. Our Philadelphia based festival will open doors to the participants from the Republic of Georgia and the neighboring countries, who have no opportunities to travel to the USA to perform live at the festival. 

Our Festival established itself as a unique concert organization that encompasses both educational and performance practices for young talented artists, who have been performing since young age at the prestigious venues along with professional guest artists, including students of Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, and prominent educators from all of the United States. 

In addition to the unique performance opportunity, our participants will build up their resumes and expand their professional network performing at the historical venue of the Academy of Music - mecca for all classical musicians, particularly pianists. 

The Academy of Music is the oldest opera house in the US, home of the Philadelphia Orchestra and a heritage site closely associated with the memory of the great Sergei Rachmaninoff and the tradition of performing his music in Philadelphia. 

Since 2017, a traditional festival includes multiple winners' concerts, where the winners of the 1st and 2nd prizes perform in front of the audience and receive their awards on stage. In addition to that, every year participants also have an option to enter a concerto or solo competition to compete for monetary awards. 

This year we welcome young musicians to enter the Rachmaninoff online competition. The advantage of participating in this competition is that any participant, who successfully passes an audition will be invited to perform at the festival. We believe that every participant's performance will be unique and will create an amazing atmosphere of Rachmaninoff's music celebration. 

The Triumph Music Festival is an exclusive educational and performing event with a unique opportunity for the winners to participate at the Gala Concert held at the historic Academy of Music Ballroom in Philadelphia.
The mission of the Festival is to provide an extraordinary performance opportunity for young musicians, and to support growing artists with professional evaluation and guidance of our panel of judges, international guest artists, and outstanding teachers.
The historic city of Philadelphia is a home of the oldest grand opera house in the United States, which was opened in 1857. Since then, many prolific musicians have graced Academy of Music with their presence and historic performances, including Peter Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Igor Stravinsky, Arthur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz, Enrico Caruso, and others.
