Silverstein Global Clarinet Contest Results - BK Son, Director


                                  Silverstein has hosted the first online global clarinet contest as our appreciation to all clarinet musicians and students in the world.

Facebook Group page is opened at

                               Pursuing a musical career is a strenuous process, there is no shortcut. Musicians practice with endless effort to master each passing note with precision and musicality. It is with this effort that they make the world more beautiful and a better place to live.

                              However, many musicians do not have a fair opportunity to showcase their accomplishments and efforts to the world. Such opportunities are limited for many reasons such as (but not limited to) geographical location, access to an educational system, and financial capacity.
This contest was created to provide amateur musicians, globally, a stage to present their music without such limitations. In doing so, we hope this contest increases the wide-spread interest in clarinet music.
                           Unlike other clarinet competitions, this event is not a skills competition.
We want to recognize any and all musicians, regardless of age, whom possess a great potential of talent for the future.

                         The Silverstein Global Clarinet Contest is our way to show appreciation to those who have been working tirelessly to bring beautiful music into the world.
This event is hosted by many renowned artists from around the world who are leaders in today’s clarinet society. They are willing to share their precious time and effort for the future of clarinet music. Without their volunteered support and participation, this event would not be possible. You can find a full list of the hosting team at
We hope that this contest is exciting and engaging for all participants.
