Each year, we select several outstanding students to participate in prestigious music festivals, where the most talented young musicians from around the world perform and compete. In addition, we are in the process of organizing various international music competitions designed to offer our students the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and compete at the highest level. LICM’s ultimate responsibility and goal are to foster the finest young professionals who will be recognized wherever they perform as musicians.
