Dear host families for the competition in 2021!

Although the number of infections is low and concerts are currently possible again, there are many uncertainties for the Kuhlau competition, which was planned for the last week of October this year.

After many discussions and deliberations, we decided at the beginning of June 2021 not to hold the competition in Uelzen as usual, but to run it as an online competition.

In the meantime, the updated competition regulations have been published on the homepage and registration for the competition is possible.

We hope that an online competition will be attractive for students – they can take part in the competition with videos and do not have to worry about accommodation, travel, quarantine regulations or other corona requirements.

The auditions in a single week of the competition and the encounters in the Theater an der Ilmenau and in the host families will unfortunately be canceled in 2021. We hope we can still present some young artists with their videos on YouTube – we are currently working on a corresponding concept.

The next competition is scheduled in Uelzen from October 22-28, 2023. We would be very happy if you would support the young instrumentalists again and welcome them as guests.
