The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce the nine finalists of its 25th Annual Young Artists Competition. The live final round will take place January 13th at 1:00 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, Vancouver, WA. 89.9FM All Classical Portland Radio’s Christa Wessel returns as Master of Ceremonies for this highly anticipated event.
Continuing the exciting competition format, nine finalists chosen from the area’s most talented young musicians will compete in three categories: piano, strings and winds. The concert is free and open to the public with no advance ticketing required. Michelle’s Pianos has generously provided two grand pianos for this competition.
Over six dozen young musicians (18 and under) from Washington and Oregon submitted audition recordings to the VSO for a preliminary round. The top three finalists in each category were chosen to compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform live with The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Salvador Brotons April 13th & 14th, 2019 at Skyview Concert Hall, Vancouver, WA.
