"Young Virtuoso", annual flute competition 

in Saint-Petersburg, Russia 


Co-Founder, Sponsor

"Young Virtuoso" is an annual flute competition held in St. Petersburg (the hometown of Yulia Berry) on the basis of the State Mravinsky Music School. The author of the idea and director Irina Nekipelova.

Yulia Berry is proud to be Co-Founder and Sponsor of Young Virtuoso from the very beginning, along with the Maestro Yuri Temirkanov International Foundation for Cultural Initiatives.

Xth Young Virtuoso, Annual Flute Competition in Saint-Petersburg, Russia was held in February of 2020. The original idea to hold it on or around February 14, Valentine's Day to celebrate love for the Flute has been carried through 9 years, proving that love always wins.

The competition has been thriving and blossoming, transforming into a 2 level competition, taking place at the Mravinsky Music School and finishing the second round at the Mussorgsky Music College and The Rimsky-Korsakov Music College (alternating them every year). Among the judges are best flutists and flute teachers of Saint-Petersburg. As the competition keeps growing, more flutists every year from many regions travel to Sant-Petersburg to participate.

Every year the contestants are required to perform a solo flute music, written for the Competition. This year the required piece is "From The Far Land" by the amazing Romanian-Canadian composer Marius Herea!

Congratulations to the Author of the Competition Irina Nekipelova. Irina is a very dedicated flutist and pedagogue, whose students won countless competitions and performed in best music venues and palaces of Saint-Petersburg. Irina has been working tirelessly on taking "Young Virtuoso" to the highest level!
Also, thank you to all volunteers and of course, the Mravinsky Music School for their strong support!

In 2016 Yulia Berry was a guest judge at the V Anniversary Competition.
