Youth Concerto Competition


Each fall, area students through 12th grade are invited to submit an entry on CD of their performance of any movement from any concerto for any instrument, with a maximum length of 12 minutes. Entry deadline was September 20, 2019 for this season’s 22nd annual competition–click here for more information about the competition entry guidelines.

The 22nd Annual Brazos Valley Youth Concerto Competition will be November 17, 2019 at 3pm at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in College Station.

Finalists were chosen in blind judging by Marcelo Bussiki, Music Director and Conductor of the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra. Competition entrants submitted a CD of their performance of any movement from any concerto for any instrument. Finalists were selected in October 2019.

The competition is sponsored by the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra and its support guild, the Friends Association of the Symphony Orchestra (FASO).

The finalists will perform their competition entry from memory before a panel of  judges and an audience. While the judges are making their decision, the Symphony Belles will host a reception in the church foyer.
