The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra continues to celebrate the incredible musical talent of our community’s rising stars, and thanks to a generous anonymous donation, are expanding its Young Artists Competition scholarship fund.
The Call for Entries is continuing. Students are eligible to compete in the categories of piano, strings and brass/woodwinds/percussion. Winners of the Young Artists Competition will be awarded $3,000 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $750 for third place. Applications must be received in the Vancouver Symphony office no later than Tuesday, December 3, 2019, at 4:00 PM.
Selected candidates will go on to compete in front of a live audience on January 12, 2020, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Vancouver. This performance is free and open to the public. The three Gold Medalists will then perform under the baton of Maestro Salvador Brotons and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on April 18 and April 19, 2020.
