The EUROASIA Youth Music Festival was established with the objective of bringing together talented musicians, music-lovers, and music organizations from all over the world. To strengthen relationships and establish ties, and to assure long-lasting interests for music.
We aim to foster the talents of participants by providing them with the opportunity to gain experience through performing alongside world class musicians, to be inspired by the efforts of their peers and to immerse in the joy of making music in an intimate and inspiring setting. The festival will provide a wide opportunity for performers at all stages of their music development.
