  • 27 years old – the average age of competitors
  • The youngest competitor is 15 years old; the oldest is 33.
  • Competitors have sent - safely from their homes - the video recordings of their performances that you can watch below.
  • The repertoire was chosen by competitors.
  • The results of the First Round, according to the Jury’s vote, will be announced on September 16, 2020, at 5:00 PM GMT | 8:00 PM EEST (Romania), on our website

This year our concert hall is online.

With greater reason, the performers’ emotions are heightened. They need a warm audience more than ever before.
