The Florida Orchestra Musicians Association is sponsoring a Young Artists Competition to be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the Music Center on the Gibbs Campus of St. Petersburg College.
This competition will be open to all instrumental music (including piano) students up to and including age 22 from Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties, with a Junior Division for those up to and including age 14 (though a younger student may elect to participate in the Senior Division, see rules).
Senior Division contestants will perform one movement of any standard orchestral concerto with readily available parts and score. Junior Division contestants may play any classical solo of their choice.
There will be two categories in each division (piano and instrumental), each with their own panel of appropriate judges (instrumental judges are Florida Orchestra musicians, piano judges are college piano faculty). A first, second and third place will be awarded in each category, and all participants and winners will be recognized at an afternoon ceremony/recital. A grand prize winner will be determined by judging at the afternoon recital and will perform their concerto movement at an upcoming Florida Orchestra concert.
