The Betty Frost Jenkins Young Artist Concerto Competition provides a high-quality performance experience for the finest young musicians from Central Wisconsin, and assists them in pursuing advanced study.
The grand prize winner will receive a $500 cash scholarship to assist with their musical studies. An honorable mention may also be named. The grand prize winner may also appear as soloist with the CWSO on the December subscription concerts, contingent upon public health recommendations at the time of the concerts.

3. Competitors will perform a movement or standard excerpt of a concerto of their choice, not to exceed fifteen (15) minutes in length. The selection must be an original concerto composed for the instrument and orchestra (no transcriptions).
4. Repertoire must be approved by the CWSO before the recording submission deadline, or competitor will be considered ineligible. Criteria for approval include availability of music, rental/purchase cost, and suitability with the CWSO’s programming.
5. Piano accompaniment is optional. Competitors may use live or recorded accompaniment if they choose. Recorded accompaniment must not include the solo track. There is no penalty for performing without accompaniment.

For private music teachers: Do you live within the geographical boundaries of the competition? (See rule #2 above)
No, but the student I am recommending does.
I recommend this young musician as a strong contestant in the CWSO Betty Frost Jenkins Young Artist Concerto Competition, and if selected as a winner, as a competent and worthy soloist for public performance with the CWSO.
