XVIII Concurso Internacional de Música de Cámara de Arnuero

The Arnuero International Chamber Music Competition (CIMCA) was born as a national competition for young musicians that over the years has become a true international gathering of musicians from very different countries. A moment for the exchange of experiences between young performers of very diverse nationalities and a platform to help them in their professional careers as stable chamber ensembles. And also a space for discovering the composers of our time.

In 2021 and due to the Covid19 pandemic, we have been forced to carry out a profound transformation. This is how a new contest format was born in which the qualifying phase will take place online by sending videos of the participating groups, and only the final will take place in person.

Our prizes are:

  • First prize: 1.500 euros, certificate and paid concert in the Creando Futuros (Creating Futures) series at the Botín Center in Santander.
  • Second prize: 1.000 euros, certificate and paid concert in the Marcos Históricos (Historical Settings) series of the Santander International Festival.
  • “Ricardo Hontañón” Award: 500 euros and a certificate. For the best performance of a work written after 1945.
