Applications and initial recordings are now due April 27. Live auditions are still scheduled for May 5 in Virginia, MN. Applicants will be notified by April 28 as to their invitation status for the live auditions.
Mesabi Symphony Orchestra conducts a young artist competition in the spring of every year. Music students of high school and college age through age 25 are eligible to apply if they are US residents living with 130 miles of Virginia, Minnesota. Vocal, instrumental, and piano students may apply. Applications for the 2020 competition are due April 27, 2020.
The application process entails submission of a digital recording, followed by an in-person audition before a panel of judges. Only the most qualified applicants are chosen to participate in the live auditions.
The two winners then perform with the orchestra at a concert during the following season.
