2008-2009 OAYO Youth Concerto Competition

Saturday, April 5, 2008
UNO Recital Hal
Strauss Performing Arts Center
60th & Dodge, Omaha NE

On February 26th, OAYO announced the date for their annual Youth Concerto Competition. A post marked application was to be mailed on March 21st so this announcement is a bit late for those who want to participate. Nevertheless, the Concerto Competition Finals are open to the public!

It's a good chance to see some of the young local talent. Last year our friend Luke Witchger won and performed at the Holland during the holidays.

The competition also isn't strictly strings. I remember back in the OAYO days that the Concerto Competition winners were usually violinists but now they even include winds, brass, percussion, harp, guitar and piano.

What's at stake!? Bragging rights to the title of "2008-2009 Youth Concerto Competition Winner". A performance backed by the Youth Symphony during the 2008-2009 season. Plus, there's the cash prize of $250.

For more information read up on the fine print at OAYO's website.
