the northland's premier competition for young musicians

Northland Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce the newly updated Young Artist Competition, presented by AlphaGraphics Downtown. This competition represents a complete rethink of one of the Northland Symphony's oldest traditions and core principles - providing performing opportunities for student musicians in our area.

This year, musicians will have the chance to compete for a grand prize of $2,500 and the opportunity to perform with the Symphony in our 2018-19 Season. Second place will receive $1,000, and third place will receive $500

Currently, this competition is open to 9th, 10th and 11th grade students (at the time of their audition) from Clay, Platte, and Jackson counties in Missouri. Auditions will take place on May 19th at Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church. Applications must be received by May 5th, 2018.
