Each year since its founding, the West Suburban Symphony Society has proudly provided an opportunity for high-school musicians to compete to perform a solo work with orchestra. The competition is open to string, woodwind and brass instrumentalists and to vocalists, with a $500 prize to the winner.
The winner of our 2019-20 competition - our 73rd - was cellist Willian Tan of Hinsdale. He was scheduled to perform with the orchestra at our May 3, 2020, concert in Hinsdale, now cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus.
Information about future solo competitions will be posted here as it becomes available.
