The Concert

The Concert

Hear the most innovative and creative new instruments in the world at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition Concert. More than 100 applicants from 20 countries applied to the competition this year, and we presented the ten best.

Our Competition finalists  put on an out of this world show as they presented their inventions at the Concert. They explained why and how they created their instruments, and demonstrated their potential through some very unique performances.  As always, the Concert was appropriate -- and engaging -- for all ages.

At the end of the evening, the judges will announced the Competition winners and the audience voted for their favorites.


Thanks to everyone who came to the 2020 concert or watched online! Watch the replay of the concert on YouTube.
