Fall Youth Concerto Competition

This competition is canceled for the 2020-2021 season. Check back in Spring 2021 for information about next season’s competition!

The Fall Youth Concerto Competition provides outstanding young instrumentalists in grades 3-8 with the opportunity to perform solo repertoire with John DeMain and the Madison Symphony Orchestra at the annual Fall Youth Concerts. Winners also receive a scholarship to attend the UW-Madison Summer Music Clinic. Contact Education Assistant Lisa Kjentvet at lkjentvet@madisonsymphony.org with any questions.

Thank you, Madison Symphony Orchestra, for giving me the opportunity to reach out to students from all over Wisconsin through my music. What an amazing experience it was to solo with a professional orchestra and knowing my performance may have inspired others. I will never forget the exuberance and energy that I felt performing with the Madison Symphony Orchestra on the Overture Stage. Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for the young musicians in Wisconsin!
