Due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the Mesabi Symphony Orchestra is postponing auditions for its 2020 Young Artist Competition. We regret the postponement, but with all Minnesota schools and universities closed or online-only, there are too many difficulties presented at this time.
We will announce new dates for applications and auditions in Fall 2020. Please watch this space for further announcements.
Mesabi Symphony Orchestra host an annual Young Artists Competition. 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.
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 symphony in a future concert.
