Online Chamber Music Competition for Wind Instruments

Woodwind Quintet & Brass Quintet 


We wish to encourage more chamber music ensembles to perform and grow. A competition can offer many benefits to the participants and BIMC provides a platform where they can feel comfortable competing. We hope that this will help musicians realise their dreams and potential.

combined woodwind quintet players age limit is 150 years in full

expenses reduced to minimum – apart from the registration fee there is no cost for transportation, accommodation and meals for the woodwind quintet players

the only concern is providing quality video recordings for each of the 3 rounds

a challenging contest repertoire based on three rounds, each with additional technical and artistic requirements

a fixed repertoire for the three rounds of the competition that provides little room for subjectivity

one additional free-choice work for the 2nd round that gives flexibility for the woodwind quintet players
