SYMC Swiss Youth Music Competition

The Swiss Youth Music Competition SYMC takes place every year. FONDATION SUISA participates by offering additional prizes at the competition.

The SYMC is the most important national event for promoting music among our youth. The final, in which winners are chosen in the sections classical, jazz and pop/rock, takes place in a different venue each year. All prizewinners in the SYMC “classical” final who excel in performances of Swiss works  are further honoured with a FONDATION SUISA Recognition Prize to the value of CHF 500.-. Applications to participate in the SYMC can be made via the SYMC website.
