JM Serbia was created in 1954 and re-founded after the break up of former Yugoslavia, in 1992.
JMS runs many local and national events including school concerts, the Summer Academy of Sacred Music (Monastery Studenica), an open-air festival called "Kalemegdan Dusks", a Quiz-competition for high schools, public concerts and workshops for young Serbian musicians.
One of its leading projects is the International Jeunesses Musicales Competition Belgrade which is held annually. The Competition is dedicated to the most promising young musicians at the beginning of their international careers and is a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions, held in Geneva. Every year the Competition is open to different instruments played by musicians from any nationality under 30 years of age. In 2008 the category chosen for the competition will be Solo voice which will be followed in the next years by Piano (2009), Violoncello and Guitar (2010), Violin (2011), Clarinet (2012), Solo voice (2013).
