2017 Competition Participants

In the Youth Solo Competition, musicians perform a memorized concerto with piano accompaniment for our panel of judges. Open to all young musicians in Southeast Alaska, this competition helps prepare music students for larger state-wide competitions and university auditions. All costs of the competition are absorbed by the Juneau Symphony and no fees are charged to participants. Grand-prize winners are invited to perform their concerto with the Juneau Symphony on the mainstage.
