The VPO offers a tri-annual Concerto Competition for Emerging Artists, which provides an opportunity for aspiring musicians to gain experience performing with a full orchestra and to win cash prizes. The goal of this competition is to support BC’s local young musicians to further develop their artistic talents.
Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a secondary or post-secondary institution. Finalists are selected through a competitive process for a rare opportunity to perform a featured work with the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra.
Previous competitions were held in VPO’s 2010/11, 2013/14, and 2016/17 seasons. The next competition will take place in the 2019/20 season. Information about the 2016/17 competition is included in the following poster and application form:
