Solo Competitions

Solo Competition and Performance Program

The GSYO Solo Competition and Performance Program challenges young artists to master their art and themselves through development of talent, character, confidence, and leadership skills.

HOW IT WORKS

Each April GSYO hosts two solo competitions for musicians ages 6-18. One competition is for piano and the other is for all other instruments.

  • Winners will be selected to perform during the following season.
  • The Piano Competition is open to GSYO members and non-members.
  • The “All-Orchestra” Competition is open to GSYO members only and is for all instruments (excluding piano).
  • The application deadline is final. Please read all instructions carefully.
  • There is a $40 non-refundable application fee.
  • The schedules for the Piano and All-Orchestra competitions will be posted on this page. There will be no other notifications made.

Musicians who would like to be considered for performances with Symphony and/or Sinfonietta should prepare a solo from the standard repertoire with orchestral accompaniment. Works performed at Symphony and Sinfonietta during the current season are not recommended. To view suggested pieces for beginning and intermediate levels please click here.

Competition is closed until next year.
Please check back in January of 2019 for more details.
