APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2018

The 2018 Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition is open to any instrumentalist or vocalist aged 22 or younger by the deadline, 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 (preferably a minimum of two contrasting movements) or a group of operatic arias. It is highly recommended that the material you submit is of sufficient length to show variety, i.e. a mixture of rhythmic and lyrical playing, etc. as opposed to exclusively fast or exclusively slow music. CD recordings only please. Make sure your CD will play on a CD player, not only on a computer.
  • The 2018 NSYO Concerto Competition application form which can be downloaded from the NSYO website.
  • A current resume.
  • Two reference letters from recognized professional musicians supporting the application.
Applications must be received by the NSYO office no later than March 29, 2018. An independent jury will select a winner to perform with the NSYO in scheduled performances during the 2018/19 NSYO season.
