Getting to Carnegie Competition Returns for its Seventh Year on January 12, 2021 with Four Violin Finalists
For the first time, the competition’s final round will take place virtually, streamed on Getting to Carnegie and The Violin Channel’s Facebook pages

The innovative Getting to Carnegie competition, sometimes described as “the Hunger Games of classical music,” returns for its seventh year on January 12, 2021 at 5pm ET. Rotating annually between violin, cello, and voice, this year’s final round will bring together four young violinists from Spain, South Korea, Hong Kong, and the United States: Maria Dueñas (age 18), Sory Park (20), Angela Chan (23), and Sophia Stoyanovich (24). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s competition will take a virtual format for the first time, streaming on Getting to Carnegie and The Violin Channel’s Facebook pages for audiences across the globe.

Unlike other classical competitions, in which the audience typically plays a passive role, the audience of Getting to Carnegie is directly involved in choosing the ultimate winner. Fifty percent of the vote will come from the audience watching the live stream and the other fifty percent will come from a jury of professional musicians including the past six winners (Haeji Kim, violin; Chae won Hong, cello; Emily Helenbrook, voice; Nathan Meltzer, violin; Rachel Siu, cello; Brianna Robinson, voice) and violinist Dmitri Berlinsky. The voting will be open for 48 hours and the winner will be announced Jan 14 at 5pm EST on The Violin Channel’s Facebook page (
