It is our mission to provide highly talented musicians with a platform to compete among peers and deliver constructive feedback on how they can improve further in their career.

The winner of the award will have the special opportunity to perform together with Victor Dijon de Monteton, Koh Gabriel Kameda and a symphony orchestra at the Swiss Charity Concert.

The Swiss Charity Award is based on three key values.
1) It’s a neutral platform to support young musical talents in their development process.
2) We are forward thinking by embracing the newest and easiest technology in executing the competition globally.
3) Our aim is to grow constantly and promote the competition and its values in order to potentially extend beyond music in the future.
