Each year since its founding, the West Suburban Symphony Society has proudly provided an opportunity each season for high school musicians to compete to perform a solo work with orchestra.

The application process for the 2013-14 competition, open to wind players, string players, and vocalists, has closed.  This year's winner, Lucie Ticho, will perform the third and fourth movements of Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1 with the orchestra on Sunday, March 16, 2014, at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park.

For reference, here is the information that was needed to apply:  contest rules and entry form. To join the mailing list for future competitions, e-mail us your name and address!
