25th Annual Young Artists Competition with emcee Christa Wessel from All Classical Portland


Students vie for over $5,000 in scholarship money and chance to perform with VSO.

Every season, one of the best-attended and most eagerly anticipated events is the
VSO Young Artists Competition and the performances of the three winners with the
orchestra on April 13th and 14th. These are joyous events
that celebrate the area’s incredible musical talent.

Following the initial judging of application CDs by select area musicians at 1:00 pm, the three top candidates in each category will compete January 13, 2019, in front of an audience at Trinity Lutheran Church in Vancouver for the scholarship prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place.

First place finishers then perform their winning selections with Maestro Brotons and The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra at our April 13th & 14th, 2019 concerts at Skyview Concert Hall.
