The International ISANGYUN Competition has been presented by the Tongyeong International Music Foundation since 2003. It is held in remembrance of Isang Yun (1917~1995), the renowned Korean composer, by promoting cultural exchanges among nations through music, and by supporting talented young musicians from all over the world. The Competition is held annually in November, alternating between the disciplines Violin, Violoncello and Piano. 2018 will see the next Violoncello Competition, while Piano will be held again in 2019.
The First prize winner of the last Violin Competition in 2014 was Luke Hsu (USA).
