YIMC 2020

July 6 - 11, 2020 in Liege, Belgium

After the great success of both "Ysaye International Music Competition" in July 2018 and 2019, for which more than 200 participants and 38 nationalities were assembled every time, Ashot Khachatourian and Elena Lavrenov organize through the association "La Vraie Note” an online classical music festival, the “Ysaye International online Festival” (solo violin and chamber music). This will take place from July 6th to 11th, 2020 and will replace the 3rd edition of the "Ysaye International Music Competition" canceled due to the COVID-19. 

A « virtual basket » will be set to support the artists performing during the festival.
