The North Carolina Symphony will hold the preliminary round of its annual Kathleen Price and Joseph M. Bryan Youth Concerto Competition at the Wainwright Music Building at Meredith College in Raleigh on May 19.
The competition is open to instrumentalists between 10 and 21 years of age. All participants must be North Carolina residents or students enrolled full-time in a North Carolina school.
Competition participants perform one movement from any concerto of their choosing. The piece must be performed from memory. Preliminary auditions will be held on April 16 beginning at 9 a.m. and last no more than ten minutes each. Accompanists are required and must be provided by the performer. Applicants ages 16 to 21 compete in the senior division, 10 to 15 in the junior division.
Applications to reserve an audition time are now being accepted. First and second-place winners in both divisions will receive a cash prize. The winner of the senior division will also perform as a featured soloist with the North Carolina Symphony at a future public performance.
