Solo Competition

Each year since its founding, the West Suburban Symphony Society has proudly provided an opportunity for high-school musicians to compete to perform a solo work with orchestra. The competition is open to string, woodwind and brass instrumentalists and to vocalists, with a $500 prize to the winner.

The winner of our 2019-20 competition - our 73rd - will perform with the orchestra at our May 3, 2020, concert in Hinsdale.

Applications for the 2019-20 competition will be posted here soon. We expect that applications will be due in early January 2020 and that finalists will perform live auditions in February 2020.
