Concerto Competition

Our Spring Concert will feature the winner of the LSYO Concerto Competition.

Candidates need to prepare a movement from any major concerto or solo piece with orchestral accompaniment from the standard repertoire. The selection must be playable by the LSYO and no longer than 12 minutes in length. Students should make a recording of their performance with piano accompaniment and submit it to Mrs. Habitzruther by the deadline listed on the Calendar. A panel of judges will listen to these recordings and a live/final audition of selected candidates will be scheduled for January. Performers need to have their selection memorized and must perform with an accompanist at this final audition. Three copies of the piano accompaniment must be submitted for the live audition.

If you are interested in the Concerto Competition, please download and complete thisĀ form and submit it to Mrs. Habitzruther by the deadline.

Any student who is even remotely considering auditioning should speak with Mr. Habitzruther about possible concerto selections before the end of September. In order for more students to be able to perform a solo with the LSYO, previous winners will not be allowed to audition. Selections may be no longer than 12 minutes.
