You decide: Who Will Win the First Conductors' Academy?

The highlight of this year's Conductors' Academy will take place on the last day: In the closing concert, each individual candidate conducts a piece and can demonstrate the skills he or she has learned. And not only that, the winner of the jury prize will be invited by Paavo Järvi to take part in the Pärnu Music Festival 2021..

So that interested young conductors from all over the world, acquaintances and relatives of the academy members and all Paavo fans in general can be present live, the closing concert will also be broadcast via livestream.

Join Paavo Järvi and watch the Academy participants at work with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich.

Because you, dear audience, will choose the audience winner after the closing concert. The audience prize is CHF 1'000, sponsored by the Gönnerverein.
