EOIVC & Community Engagement

While seeking out and supporting talented young violinists, ages 16-32, is at the core of the Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition, the EOIVC has a deep commitment to engaging with the communities it serves. The EOIVC recognizes the vital importance of encouraging and inspiring young musicians to think beyond themselves, using their skills to better the world around them and striving to become citizen artists.  The EOIVC provides a wide-range of community engagement activities that not only involve its Laureates, but also its international judges and its Founder & Artistic Director, Elmar Oliveira and Executive Director, Jill Arbetter.

EOIVC winner in action: Sirena Huang gave a fantastic master class for students from the West Shore Junior/Senior High School. She not only played a few unaccompanied pieces, but listened and coached the talented students. It was a real treat for all!
