AVANTI Summer MusicFest has announced a new Concerto/Solo Competition open to all AVANTI 2013 participants. As part of the second annual AVANTI workshop for students aged 13-18, all attending students have the opportunity to compete to win a performance accompanied by the musicians of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). This is one of several new additions to AVANTI’s offerings this summer.
To be eligible for the competition, students must be a participant in the 2013 AVANTI Summer MusicFest Workshop, complete the on-line application form and submit an unedited video of the first movement of a standard concerto or sonata along with a $10 fee (www.avantisummermusicfest.org/concerto-competition/) by June 1. Two possible winners will be selected by DSO musicians to perform alongside them at the AVANTI Chamber Music Concert or Festival Orchestra Concert on Thursday or Friday, July 25-26, 2013.
The first annual AVANTI Concerto/Solo Competition is an example of the innovative and collaborative AVANTI initiatives set to take place in the Metro Detroit area this summer.
