Young Artist Auditions 2018
The Young Artists Auditions are a project of the Chico Guild ~ North State Symphony, which awards the High School Division prizes. The North State Symphony League of Redding provides the College-University Division Prizes.
Each year the Chico Guild - North State Symphony and the North State Symphony League of Redding, in conjunction with the conductor of the North State Symphony, cosponsor the annual Young Artists Auditions. The competition consists of a High School Division for students in grades 7 through 12 and a College/University Division.
Winners in each division receive a cash award and a chance to perform with the North State Symphony in the 2018-19 concert season. Second-place winners in each division receive a cash award.
Many of the most talented young musicians in northern California have participated in these auditions. They gave outstanding performances. The Guild and League promote efforts to nurture and support talented young musicians who are serious about classical music. We would like to encourage teachers to help prepare their most promising students for the Young Artists Auditions and students to work with their teachers.
