Five promising young string players ages 13-18 will compete in the final round of the 2nd Annual WHCO Young Artists Competition in partnership with Florian Leonhard Fine Violins. Students will compete for the grand prize of a $1,000 scholarship, a solo engagement with the orchestra on our final concert with the use of a fine instrument courtesy of Florian Leonhard Fine Violins. After a blind semi-final round the proceeding week, the finals are open to the public and will be moderated by a distinguished guest panel of judges.
