New World Youth Orchestras - The Young Artist Concerto Competition

The Young Artist Concerto Competition

In 1988, New World began the Young Artist Concerto Competition. Susan Kitterman felt that there were many students in the orchestra that would benefit from performing a solo with the orchestra. She tried to give as many of these students such an opportunity, but there were other talented students not in the orchestra that she heard about who could enjoy the benefits of such an experience. Thus, the Young Artist Concerto Competition began. The annual competition has two separate divisions: the junior division for students up to age thirteen, and the senior division for students fourteen through eighteen. The winners are awarded cash prizes and the opportunity to perform with New World Youth Symphony Orchestra. The Philharmonic sponsors an internal Concerto Competition each season.

Famous quotes containing the words competition, young and/or artist:

    All adults who care about a baby will naturally be in competition for that baby.... Each adult wishes that he or she could do each job a bit more skillfully for the infant or small child than the other.
    T. Berry Brazelton (20th century)

    Oh who is that young sinner with the handcuffs on his wrists?
    And what has he been after that they groan and shake their fists?
    And wherefore is he wearing such a conscience-stricken air?
    Oh they’re taking him to prison for the colour of his hair.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    Rich are the sea-gods:Mwho gives gifts but they?
    They grope the sea for pearls, but more than pearls:
    They pluck Force thence, and give it to the wise.
    Every wave is wealth to Daedalus,
    Wealth to the cunning artist who can work
    This matchless strength. Where shall he find, O waves!
    A load your Atlas shoulders cannot lift?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
