Young Stars of the Future
The Premiere county-wide Performance Competition & Concert
The goal of the Young STARS of the Future Competition and Concert is to foster new, young talent residing or studying in Orange County, California. Winners of the Young STARS of the Future auditions are selected by a Jury of distinguished musicians. The criteria are exceptional talent, virtuosity, artistic individuality, projection as a performer, and promise. The musicians compete against a standard of excellence – not each other. There is a limit of three First Prize Winners. Each winner receives a $1000 US Savings Bond and a performance with the Symphony.
Auditions are open for all Orchestral Instruments as well as Piano, Organ, Harp, Voice and Conducting. The three categories include Classical, Jazz, and Musical Theatre.
Past winners are now performing on Broadway and in national Touring Companies; as classical artists appearing in Concert Halls throughout the country, and attending major music universities like Julliard, Manhattan School of Music, and the USC Thornton School of Music.
