....................Youth Soloist Competition

The Magic Valley Symphony highlights outstanding youth musicians in our youth soloist

The Magic Valley Symphony highlights outstanding musicians in a concerto competition for young artists held in even-numbered years.

 Contestants audition in June with a 6- to 10-minute standard repertoire
piece with published orchestral accompaniment.  Winners receive a
generous scholarship and may be invited to perform with the Symphony
at the October concert.

Based upon auditions held in June of 2016 two winners were selected from over a dozen contestants.  Both will repeat their winning performances with the Symphony on Sunday, October 9, 2016. The 2016 competition was a
great success.

Congratulations to our winners: harpist Sarah Close and pianist Sarah Wagoner.

Thanks to the support of Seagraves Family Foundaiton, each will be awarded a scholarship in the amount of $1,000. 

Watch this space for the announcement of the application deadline and auditions for the 2018 Youth Soloist Competition.
