The Patron’s Prize: A Music Festival in France
The Patron’s Prize highlights both Euroasia’s standing as a premier competition platform in the country, as well as the heart of its mission: to establish connections between our country and the cultural heritage of Europe. The Prize provides a scholarship to attend the Festival de Musique des Arcs in France in 2020. It covers both flights as well as the academy fees, with accommodation and other costs left to the participant.
Concerto Prize: A Concerto Performance in Thailand
The prize highlights the value of competitions as platforms for identifying talent (and hard work!) in the new generation of musicians, and as a way of propelling them forward. This Prize provides the opportunity to perform as a soloist with the world-renowned Siam Sinfonietta, an orchestra that has garnered standing ovations at Carnegie Hall, under the direction this year’s Co-Head of Jury of the Euroasia Competition.

Best Performer in an Age Category
This is an elective prize, meaning that it is up to the jury’s discretion whether this is awarded on top of the regular prizes.

This award provides the winner with the choice of either a Pedi shoulder rest or a bow tube, with a retail value of RM308.
Most Promising Violinist
This is also an elective prize, and can be awarded to a violinist of any age category deemed exceptional.
