Eighteen young violinists will compete for prizes from August 15-19, 2022 at Ohio's Oberlin Conservatory

 

We're coming to you from Oberlin, Ohio, for the eleventh annual Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition.

Founded in 2010, the competition alternates annually between piano and violin. Open to musicians between the ages of 13 and 18, the competition culminates in a final round where the top three competitors perform a full concerto with orchestra.

The first prize winner will receive a $20,000 first prize and a two-year partnership with MKI Artists, which includes up to 10 concerto or recital engagements throughout the United States. First prize will also get exclusive rights for the world premiere and subsequent performances of a new six-minute work for violin and orchestra composed by Jeff Scott for a period of two years, plus the use of a rare Italian violin loaned for a period of two years by Jonathan Solars Fine Violins of New York.

The 2022 jury consists of Oberlin violin professor Sibbi Bernhardsson, who also directs the competition. He is joined by Danielle Belen from the University of Michigan, Philip Setzer of the Emerson String Quartet, and John Zion of MKI Artists.

Founded in 2010 and sponsored by Thomas and Evon Cooper, the Cooper Competitions saw its 2020 and 2021 editions postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Former first prize winners include VC Young Artists Sirena Huang and Johan Dalene.
