Each year, talented students from San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory’s pre-professional Ovation and intermediate level Showcase ensemble programs compete in SDYS’ solo Concerto Competitions. Solo recital competitions provide musicians, both new and accomplished, with valuable performance training, inspiration from great performances by their fellow musicians, and a goal to strive toward in practicing and perfecting their craft. In addition to cash scholarship awards, the winners of both our Concerto Competitions gain the opportunity to perform as featured soloists in future San Diego Youth Symphony concerts.
