Almost 1200 young musicians between the ages of 8 and 22 took part this year in the regional competitions of “Jugend musiziert” in Chemnitz, Hoyerswerda, Zwickau, Dresden and Leipzig. For the first time, more than half of them were forwarded to the regional competition. This was to take place on the last two weekends in March in Zwickau and had to be cancelled.

In this concert, some promising soloists and ensembles will introduce themselves, who would certainly have had the chance to receive an excellent rating in the national competition, which was also cancelled.

The event takes place in cooperation with the Saxon Music Council and the Festival Sandstein und Musik and HELLERAU – European Centre for the Arts. The “Jugend musiziert” concert was originally planned to take place at the festival in Dittersbach-Dürröhrsdorf, which had to be cancelled due to the pandemic and is now presented in HELLERAU in a modified form.
