The Guthman Musical Instrument Competition is one of the only competitions of its kind: an event dedicated to identifying the newest and greatest ideas in music. Every year, we invite musical inventors from around the world to share their creations and ideas about the future of music.

But this year we're changing the competition's format. The 2020 competition will pair each finalist with a skilled musician from the Atlanta area. The musicians will practice and learn the instrument the day of the concert, and perform for the audience to show just how accessible and innovative each creation is.
