The Lansing Symphony Youth Competition has been an annual tradition in our community for over 60 years. Many of the past winners have gone on to wonderful careers as professional musicians and music educators.

The Symphony Youth Competition encourages talented, young musicians to develop their skills and musicianship by performing in a competitive setting. Area instrumentalists in grades 9 through 12, ages 13 through 18 are eligible to participate. Cash prizes are awarded to first ($300), second ($200), and third ($100) place winners, and all participants receive feedback on their performances. NEW - The First Place winner will also be offered the opportunity to perform their concerto with the Mid-Michigan Youth Symphony on their December 2019 concert.
