2019 MCofM YOUTH CONCERTO COMPETITION
Registration now open!
This competition, offered to our young conservatory students and open to all instruments, was created to foster and nurture their musical talents, motivate them in their musical studies, trigger their desire to participate more than compete and mainly encourage them to always achieve their best. It is an educational journey that also teaches them critical thinking, an engagement that helps them develop healthy attitudes about winning and losing at a young age as we aim to give them an enjoyment philosophy rather than a winning philosophy, an experience that put any fear into perspective for the development of a resilient and confident individual.
The competition is accepting all Miami-Dade students students from ages 7–15 and is open to all instruments.
It takes place in two rounds (Preliminary and Final) and is divided in three levels:
Junior I for ages 7 – 9
Junior II for ages 10 – 12
Junior III for ages 13-15
The applicants have to perform any movement of a concerto from memory and are required to provide their own accompanist (a pianist) to play the orchestra parts.
