Young Artist Competition   
Each season the Temecula Valley Symphony hosts a Young Artist Competition. Since its inception in 2003, this competition offers performance opportunities for aspiring musicians and recognizes the many talented young people in the growing Temecula Valley and surrounding communities.

The competition is open to students throughout the Southern California region.

The student must be 18 or under on the date of the competition. Two to three winners are selected who will be featured on our annual Young Person's Concert titled BRAVO!

Contestants may perform one movement only of a classical concerto written prior to 1900 that uses orchestral accompaniment. Any works composed after that need to be pre-approved before competing.

Please call 951-587-1536 for more information and an application form. You may also find these forms in the Newsletters and Documents section of this website. Thank you.
