Young Artists Competition

Our young artists competition is currently on hiatus for the 2019-20 season.

For two seasons we were proud to support the Young Artists Competition in partnership with Florian Leonhard Fine Violins. Students ages 13 - 18 auditioned through a multi-phase application and blind screening process, with finalists performing at a string concert. The finalists judged by world-class musicians, including Anna Rabinova of the New York Philharmonic, Philip Lasser, Professor at Julliard; Sam Rhodes of the Juilliard Quartet, and celebrated member of Bang on the Can All Stars, Ashley Bathgate. The winner of the competition received a scholarship, a solo engagement with the WHCO at our May 18, 2017 concert with the use of a fine instrument courtesy of Florian Leonhard Fine Violins.

The two winners of the Young Artists Competition were Coco Mi (2017) and Jun Lin (2018).
