American Fine Arts Festival
Dear Colleagues, Students, Parents, Teachers!
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the online Stay at Home International Competition 2020-2021 Season (Summer selection) of the American Fine Arts Festival (AFAF).
During these challenging times we would like to support musicians who are now at home and are forced to revise their curriculum and creative plans.
We are eager to assist musicians who have now parted with teachers and friends in this situation.
We sincerely hope that our competition will help novice musicians cope with these difficulties and feel their relevance.
Given the current circumstances we still hope that this year’s festival will once again feature a series of concerts in New York City showcasing the talents of musicians across the Country and around the Globe. Our 2021 performance venues is also planned to include Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bruno Walter Hall at Lincoln Center, Schumann Museum Concert Hall in Zwickau (Germany), Suk hall at the Rudolfinum in Prague (Czech republic), Concert Hall at Vladimir Palace in St. Petersburg (Russia) and many others.
We would like to wish everyone to stay safe, healthy and we look forward to seeing you soon during our online sessions!
