About the Competition

The UNCG School of Music Student Artist Competition provides an annual forum for exceptional student performers to audition for the opportunity to appear in concert with the University Symphony Orchestra. Auditions typically take place in December, awarding performances on concerts scheduled between the following spring and fall semesters. Three to four student winners are normally selected for this honor.

The audition process involves two steps:

  1. A preliminary round, administered by each area of the performance department (keyboard, voice, woodwind, brass/percussion, and string)
  2. A final round, administered by the area of conducting and ensembles

The final round will take place on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 in the UNCG Recital Hall, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The finals are open to the public.
