Murray McLachlan, EPTA Executive Committee Chair,
speaking about the benefits of EPTA after the 2014 EPTA International Conference in Oslo, Norway:




Founded by Carola Grindea in 1978 in London it has today grown along with the expansion of the European borders. Every association organizes its own congresses, workshops, seminars, recitals, masterclasses and is committed to present Young Artists Platforms, Competitions and European Young Artists Festivals. An Annual Conference of all EPTA Associations is held every year in a different country under the presidency of the host Association.
