2015 Young Concert Artists
International Auditions

Young Concert Artists, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering and developing the careers of extraordinary classical musicians. Winners of the Auditions are selected by a Jury of distinguished musicians. The sole criteria are exceptional musicianship, virtuosity, and individuality. The musicians compete against a standard of excellence – not each other. There is no limit to the number of First Prize Winners each year, and the Jury has the right to select none if none qualify.
