Concerto Competition

MSYO holds an annual Concerto Competition in January and the winner(s) will be selected to perform a concerto movement or work for soloist and orchestra on the MSYO Spring Concert and/or at the Marin Symphony Family Concert accompanied by the Marin Symphony. The concerto must be on your orchestral instrument, memorized, and your audition should be accompanied by a pianist. The competition will be judged by professional musicians who do not work regularly with the auditioning candidates. Students will receive constructive feedback from the judges. (Participants must be members of MSYO for one year or longer and the competition is not open to the previous year’s winners.)
