George Gershwin International Music Competition aims to discover talent, reward brilliance, and celebrate musical artistry.

The Competition is named after George Gershwin, whose music had long been a part of the American consciousness. Truly a pioneer in his field, George Gershwin drew inspiration from European classical music, American popular music, and jazz to form a unique style that would come to define American music.

Offering international talent performance opportunities, the competition aims to universalize George Gershwin's extraordinary legacy around the world. Performing Gershwin’s music for the enthralled New York audience, future “stars” of a musical horizon seek to capture timelessness in an eminent sense of sound…

George Gershwin International Music Competition 2023 is a magical journey to the music world. A week, full of exquisite performances, master classes, and enlightening community outreach concerts, culminating with the competition Award Ceremony when the winners will be presented with prizes and concert engagements.

Along with monetary awards, finalists of the Gershwin International Music Competition 2023 will receive concerts in the United States and Europe, recordings on acclaimed music labels, and appearances with orchestras, alongside marketing/media promotion.

Founded in 2013 by American pianist and composer Michael Bulychev-Okser, George Gershwin International Music Competition takes place every two years in New York, USA. It is open to talented musicians of all nationalities.
