The 2018 Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition is open to any instrumentalist or vocalist, aged 22 years or younger, who currently resides in and/or maintains a permanent residence in Nova Scotia. Present members or alumni of the NSYO are also welcome to apply, regardless of area of residence. Competitors must provide a recent recording (no older than 6 months), of a standard concerto (one long movement or two short movements; contrasting material is required in order to show the scope and range of your playing) or a group of arias, a current resume, two reference letters from recognized professional musicians supporting the application, and the 2018 NSYO Concerto Competition application form which can be downloaded from the NSYO website. CD or digital audio recordings only please. Make sure your CD will play on a CD player, not only on a computer.

Applications must be received in the NSYO office no later than March 8, 2018. An independent jury will select a winner to perform with the NSYO in scheduled performances during the 2018/19 season.
