What is the Young Artists Competition?

The Young Artists Competition is held annually to promote and encourage talented student musicians across the region. School-age musicians may compete in one of nine divisions based on instrumentation and age. A jury of regional professional musicians evaluates the competitors. There will be cash prizes in each category.


The 2023 event is coming soon! This year's competition will be held at Columbia Basin College on March 4th, and registrations are open. The winners of each division are slated to perform at Mid-Columbia Symphony's May concert. For more information about the Young Artists Competition, contact the Symphony office at (509) 943-6602.
