Euroasia currently organises and owns two of the largest music competitions in the country – The Euroasia Strings Competition, and Malaysian Piano Competition and are recognized for offering a high level of performance in the competition rounds.
The key element of the competition is not just to celebrate talent, but to provide education – from the feedback of the adjudicators, and additional educational opportunities, such as workshops and masterclasses. For competition winners, the prizes have and continue to provide invaluable educational experiences like attending an international music summer school in Europe, learning from renowned musicians while performing in various concert venues, and the rare opportunity to perform a solo with a professional symphony orchestra.
In our efforts to make it more accessible and cost efficient for participants all around Malaysia, Euroasia was the first and only organization to establish regional round. From 2015, the Euroasia Competitions took the form of a nation-wide tour, having the preliminary round in various states, then the winners from those regions travels to Kuala Lumpur for the national level final round at the end of the 7-week tour period.
From a mere 59 participants from the competition in 2013, the competition grew to more than 2000 participants in 2019. The Euroasia competitions now welcomes both local and international participants, with young musicians from Australia, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Thailand, United Kingdom, the United States, and Vietnam.
During the pandemic period of 2020-2021, Euroasia adapted by going online, allowing for more international participation and an even wider panel of adjudicators.
As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary in 2022, Euroasia launched a new competition – the Euroasia Youth Music Festival, categorized by grades, which aims to provide a friendlier platform and to cater to a wider group of music students.
