Polstjärnepriset 2020: Harald Edin
Polstjärnepriset is a music course and competition. During the autumn break, around 50 course participants and our competitors gather in Vänersborg to play together in ensembles and orchestras, and to polish their technique with coaches from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
A number of other artists and pedagogues with great international experience are also there to really get the participants going. The young musicians are from across the country, and are aged 14-18.
Following the autumn break meeting, they will come back to Vänersborg at the beginning of January, for masterclasses and auditions for the Polstjärnepriset competition. First, eight candidates are selected, and in a second round, four finalists compete against each other in a final round of auditions. And it is this final round that takes place at the Gothenburg Concert Hall.
Polstjärnepriset is arranged by the municipality of Vänersborg in collaboration with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and several local, regional and national partners.The posts above are not moderated in advance and are therefore not covered by the website's publication authorization
