Young Musicians Competition Showcase Concert

Tickets $10 adults, youth free

The stars of tomorrow shine this afternoon at a concert just for them… and the Music in the Mountains Youth Orchestra opens the concert!

The Young Musicians’ Competition was first held in 1987. It provides the opportunity for students grades 3-12 from a six-County area to study, memorize and perform classical repertoire for professional teachers and judges. Students can participate in solo as well as ensemble divisions. All participating students receive detailed written critiques from the adjudicators.

Music in the Mountains works with private and public school music teachers to ensure that this program meets students’ needs. The competition concludes with a Showcase Concert, which is open to the public and features the winners in all categories and divisions. Cash prizes are awarded to winners, and the Paul Perry Scholarship is awarded to the best student performance.

A note to teachers: This program is not just for your best students, it is an opportunity for every student, helping motivate them to practice and to do something they will always remember! We encourage you to share this experience with all your students.
