Young Artist Competition
Celebrating its 62nd anniversary in 2018, the Young Artist Competition has had a profound effect on the lives of many young adults. This long-standing competition is an opportunity for growth in performance for participants; all competitors receive feedback from professional judges. Held in October each year, the competition is open to the community introducing our audience to young talent. The winner of the competition will play a solo with the RSO at its December subscription concert and receive a cash prize.
We look forward to sharing another proud moment with participants and their family and friends in December.
