GMP 2018 Festival

The Global Music Partnership (GMP) (www.globalmusicp.com) is a platform designed for creative collaboration between distinguished performing artists, composers, creative individuals and organizations around the world. Integrity, professionalism, mutual trust and promotion of common interests are the core principles of our partnership. In addition, GMP offers support to young aspiring musicians in reaching their artistic goals through GMP’s international network, mentorship, master classes, festivals, concerts and other educational resources. GMP partners with organizations across Asia, Europe, and North America.

The Young Talents World Festival of Performing Arts 2018, presented by Global Music Partnership and hosted by the 1867 Sanctuary, offers tremendous opportunities for young musicians to showcase their talents, build professional relationships, and win amazing awards. Current finalists for 2018 range in age from 6 to 27 and hail from the USA, Australia, Ireland, Kazakhstan, China, Montenegro, Hungary and South Korea. Enjoy this very special international event and celebration here in Mercer County, New Jersey!

Judges for this competition are Dr. Eduard Schmieder (Head of Jury), Daniel Spaulding, Hugh Sung, Elena Berman, and Eldar Saparayev.

The festival competition begins at 11 a.m. with a variety of individual and chamber ensemble performances, and the competition is organized into three age groups. The final ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. Ticket holders can enter and exit throughout the day (no food will be served in the 1867 Sanctuary, but there are many opportunities for food and drink within one mile, accessible by car).
