The Triumph Music Festival - 2019 is open to musicians of all nationalities.
The mission of the Festival is to provide an extraordinary performance opportunity and to support growing artists with professional evaluation and guidance of our panel of judges. The team of judges will feature winners of prestigious international competitions, members of Philadelphia Orchestra and music educators from colleges and universities of the United States.
The winners of the Festival will participate at the Gala performance held at the Academy of Music Ballroom in Philadelphia. The elegant Ballroom, filled with sounds of instrumentalists, vocalists, and ensembles is a special place for a memorable celebration of outstanding talents and their achievements.
This Festival can become an exclusive educational event for our participants. The historic city of Philadelphia is the 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.
We invite all aspiring musicians to participate at an inspirational classical music event - Triumph Music Festival, as well as in rich cultural life of "Avenue of the Arts".
