Thank you to everyone that applied to our 2023 YAC
For over 40 years, the WIS has hosted the Young Artist Competition, giving our area youth the opportunity to compete for the chance to perform with the Washington Idaho Symphony along with a cash price and commemorative plaque.
Each fall the WIS starts collecting applications from local musicians in High School and College. Those applications are reviewed by a panel of WIS orchestra members, including WIS Music Director, Dr. Danh Pham. The finalists are then invited to perform their piece to a panel of adjudicators. Two winners (one from the High School Division and one from the Collegiate Division) are chosen and given the opportunity to perform during the WIS Young Artists Concert in the Spring.
