Why have a concerto competition?

To support, encourage, and promote string students to reach their next level as musicians. Competition has shown to be a great avenue to raise musical talent and to continue to promote art. It prepares the student to have highly focused practice, advance technically, develop musical expression and think about their audience as recipients of their talent. This Alvaton, KY based competition will draw talent from across the region and highlight the talent here in Bowling Green.

We would like to thank you in advance for your support. Join the cause, and with your support we know we can reach the goal of $15,000. Monetary support received will cover cash prizes, adjudicator fees, advertising, and logistics. Our sponsors will be recognized on our website, social media, and be acknowledged at every level as supporters of the event. We appreciate you and invite you to generously support this fantastic opportunity for string students.

The competition is open to all pre-college violin, viola and cello students residing in the US. All students must submit a preliminary round video which will be viewed by a qualified adjudicator(s).
