Young Musicians Contest Winners

The Young Musicians Contest, first held in 2008, was designed to foster the development of young local flutists by exposing them to a healthy competitive environment and allowing them to receive constructive comments from professional flutists in town.

The contest is divided into four age groups: ages 8 and under, 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18 years of age, with the requirement that the students must currently be in high school or the home equivalent.
