The annual Chicago Violin Competition (CVC) is an international online event held in two categories — the Junior Young Artist division for violinists aged between seven to 17 and the Senior Artist category for those aged 18 to 28.

Participants in both categories from over 25 countries were assessed by CVC’s international jury. After three weeks of deliberations of over 100 applicants, the winners and laureates have been announced:


Senior Artists:

First Prize: Brandon Du (18) – USA

Second Prize: Carlos Martinez Arroyo (23) – Spain

Third Prize: Xiang Han (22) – China


Senior Laureates:

Oliver Neubauer (23) – USA

Julia Jones (18) – USA

Jihyun Baik (23) – South Korea


Young Artists:

First Prize: Gustavo Guanipa (17) – Venezuela

Second Prize: Dindin Jingyi Wang (17) – China

Third Prize: Isabella Sun (15) – Australia


Young Laureates:

Elizabeth Song (13) – USA

Jiwoo Son (13) – South Korea

Natalie Oh (14) – USA


The jury comprised Juliana Athayde, Orieta Dado, Ariana Kim, Yang Liu, and Robert Simonds.

Using technology, CVC provides emerging artists a global performing platform while lowering the barriers to entry like travel costs, as well as partnering with adjudicators from the U.S. and abroad.

The CVC was previously known as the AMI Violin Competition — which was founded by the American Music Institute (AMI) in 2010 as a national competition. The AMI now sponsors and organizes CVC as a global event.

Applications for the 2023 CVC will close on October 31, 2022. To apply, click here.
