2017-2018 Student Concerto Competition
The New Albany Symphony Orchestra Student Concerto Competition will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Graves Piano Recital Hall, 5298 Karl Road in Columbus. The competition is open to all Ohio students. Entrants are divided into categories by age at the time of audition: Junior Division, high school students and younger; and Senior Division, full-time undergraduate students age 24 and younger. There is a $40 application fee.
Each applicant must provide their own accompanist. Instrumentalists should perform one movement from a concerto from the orchestral repertoire. For instrumentalists, the concerto can be any standard concerto movement, but the judges will only hear up to 12 minutes at the competition. Vocal performers should choose a piece from the vocal orchestral repertoire, including classical, Broadway, and opera. Students should not compete with any of the concertos that have been performed by NASO the previous two seasons. (Detailed information regarding past seasons' repertoire and competition rules is available here.)
Division winners will receive a $200 cash prize and will perform with the New Albany Symphony Orchestra on March 11, 2018 at the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts.
