Youth Competition

The Brazos Valley Symphony and its support guild, the Friends Association of the Symphony Orchestra (FASO), sponsor the Brazos Valley Youth Concerto Competition each year.  Music students throughout the area, under the age of 18, are invited each fall to submit their performances of any movement from any concerto.  Marcelo Bussiki, Music Director and Conductor of the BVSO, selects the finalists each December using a blind selection process. Finalists perform at a free concert before a panel to determine the winner.  The winner is featured as a soloist in the upcoming Children’s Concert with the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra and FASO pays their entry fee for the student to participate in the Juanita Miller Concerto Competition presented by the Texas Association of Symphony Orchestras.
