Dear participants of the 2023 International Showcase Music Competition (ISMC),

As the president of the ISMC, I want to express my sincere thanks to all the participants. We had talented musicians from 19 countries, and after a fair evaluation, we chose 18 winning teams.

We’ve been deeply moved by the skills and passion displayed by all of the participants, and we believe this passion will be a driving force for your continued growth in the world of classical music.

And also, we’d like to thank all the judges for their hard work in ensuring a fair assessment.

Thank you,
