Solo Competition

Each year, we proudly provide an opportunity for young musicians to compete to perform a solo work with orchestra and earn a $500 prize. The competition is open to wind and string players and vocalists. The winner of our most recent competition, Tristan Zhu of Chicago, performed the first movement of Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major at our May 2023 concert in Hinsdale.

Contact us if you would like to be on the mailing list for our 2023-24 competition, and we will share the schedule for our 2024 auditions and performance as well as information on how to sign up to audition.
