The 2022 NYYPP Competition will be held online, so distances should not be an obstacle for any aspiring participant that meets the requirements.

The New York Young Performers Prize (NYYPP) offers a unique musical experience for students of all instruments. Young pianists and string players up to age 23, as well as vocalists up to age 25, will strive for a level of expertise and monetary prizes at an online event viewed by international audiences.
Students entering these auditions learn to develop a work ethic by preparing up to three pieces of music by memory (depending on the age group) and having their performances reviewed by acclaimed adjudicators. Entrants chosen from the preliminary round (Video Audition) are then presented at the final-round event.
The New York Young Performers Prizes go beyond developing a student’s talent. The preparation that goes into learning a piece of music and the experience of performing in a competitive environment will carry through to other aspects of their lives: academic, social, spiritual, and intellectual. In addition to rewarding students for their high levels of achievement, NYYPP also encourages teachers to maintain high pedagogical standards.
