2nd Annual Young Artists Competition Finals

In Partnership with Florian Leonhard Fine Violins

8:00 pm, January 20, 2018

Eight outstanding young string players between ages 13-18 compete in our Second Annual Young Artists Competition in Partnership with Florian Leonhard Fine Violins! 

The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship and will be WHCO's featured guest soloist at our May 20th concert where he or she will perform on a fine instrument courtesy of Florian Leonhard.  

Our distinguished panel of judges includes violist Sam Rhodes, violinist Hanna Lachert, and composer Philip Lasser.  The eight finalists were selected through a blind pre-screening process and live semi-final round.  Each finalist will perform a movement of their chosen concerto accompanied by piano.

In addition to our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, we will award an audience prize!  Come cheer on these fantastic young musicians, and vote for your favorite performance!  

Free and open to all ages. 

Thank you to our competition sponsor, Florian Leonhard.
