Ensemble 212's 2020 Young Artist Competition was canceled due to COVID-19. Our next competition will be held in 2021.

"Objective: To showcase outstanding young instrumentalists by providing opportunities to perform as a soloist with a professional orchestra."

Mission Statement

To inspire and engage classical music audiences through accessible, interactive, and educational performance experiences.

Vision Statement

Ensemble 212 will redefine the role of the 21st century chamber orchestra by becoming an online gateway for classical music audiences. We will be pioneers for using social media and technology as our primary means to broadcast our artistic output. Our innovative methods will focus on:

  • Providing our Young Artist Competition winners a platform to springboard their career.
  • Educating people about living composers and their music through our “New Music for Young Audiences” series.
  • Expanding the boundaries of programming with a global menu of traditional and contemporary offerings, focusing on Korea’s musical heritage reflected through our “Cultural Convergences” series.

Ensemble 212 will exemplify musical excellence and continuously evaluate and evolve with the cultural needs of modern society so that we are a reflection of our world.
