Rising Star Alert! Young Soloists Concerto Competition
The Young Soloists Concerto Competition is a long-standing tradition and a highlight of our season. Students grades 7-12, playing any orchestral instrument, (including piano) are invited to audition for an opportunity to perform a movement of their concerto with the SSO.
Each year, the winners dazzle the audience with their musicality and virtuosity and inspire our orchestra to rise to their level. Many past winners such as pianist Orion Weiss, and Cleveland Orchestra members Diane Mather and Eliesha Nelson have gone on to distinguished professional careers. Who will be next?
Congratulations to our 2022-2023 Winners! Daniel Colaner (Piano), Eleanor Pompa (cello), Fiona Tsang (cello)
