YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETITION

The VSO is thrilled to celebrate the incredible musical talent of our community's rising stars. Each year the VSO hosts the Young Artist Competition where 9 finalists chosen from the area's most talented young musicians (18 and under) compete in three categories: piano, strings and winds. Students vie for over 15,000 in scholarship money and the chance to perform with the VSO.



This season (2019-2020) the VSO is continuing its Call for Entries into its 26th Annual Young Artists Competition. Applications must be received to the Vancouver Symphony office no later than Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 4 p.m.
