DCOA Young Artist Competition

The Desert Community Orchestra Association has launched its annual Young Artist competition, a program that gives local student musicians an opportunity to perform as guest soloists during the orchestra’s spring concert on May 4.

Vocal and instrumental musicians age 22 and younger are invited to submit applications by Feb. 2. Auditions will be held on Feb. 23 in the morning. Musicians should select significant works by recognized composers than can be performed with the orchestra. Instrumentalists should choose music in concerto form and vocalists should choose works from a major choral or operatic work.

For applications and information call Penny Belt at 760-375-6928.
