The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra sponsors an annual competition among the best music students in the area. Students work with their teachers to select and prepare a solo piece, then perform it for members of the BSO. We then award the top two performers a scholarship and arrange for them to play their chosen piece as a soloist with the BSO during our regular concert season. Violinist Joshua Bell was one of our first winners!
In order for a student to participate in a Youth Concerto Competition, they must be nominated by a music teacher. If you believe you know a talented student who may be interested in participating, email Donna Lafferty at firstname.lastname@example.org
