The Wild Rivers Symphony is kicking off a new 2020 Youth Solo Competition.

Young musicians are invited to compete for a chance to perform with the Wild Rivers Symphony during one of its upcoming spring or winter concerts.

The competition will be divided into three categories:

• Junior Division: Age 13 or younger at the time of the competition.

• Senior Division: Age 14 through 2020 high school graduates.

• College Division: Enrolled in Humboldt State or Southern Oregon university, or College of the Redwoods or Southwestern Oregon community college.

To enter, submit an entry application to the Wild Rivers Symphony office no later than Dec. 6. Both physical and electronic submissions are accepted. Email submission to, or mail to Wild Rivers Symphony, P.O. Box 1274, Crescent City, CA  95531.

Competition auditions will be held Jan. 11, 2020 at the Del Norte High School music room, 1301 El Dorado St. in Crescent City.

Judges may select winners in each division. From the division winners, the judges may select one or two grand-prize winners to perform with the Wild Rivers Symphony at one of its 2020 spring or winter concerts. Certificates of recognition may be given at the judges’ discretion.

Judges have the discretion to select no winners in any division, or no grand-prize winner, if the performances are not deemed ready or appropriate for the concert series.
