The Lang Lang Foundation is accepting applications through October 31st for their Young Scholars Program.

This year marks the first time that applicants are accepted from around the world. Applicants must be between the ages of 6 and 16 at the time of submission, and be fluent in English.

As The Lang Lang Foundation's oldest running initiative, The Young Scholars program is a music education initiative designed to identify and support talented young pianists in their professional development. Young Scholars will become a representative of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. This requires young talents who exhibit a level of maturity beyond their years, a sincere sense of appreciation for music as a source of inspiration, and an understanding of their role as ambassadors of classical music. Selected Young Scholars will be invited to perform at Foundation programs including those focused on music education for young audience members and fundraising events.
